Old fashioned recipe, in loving memory of my aunt. It was a treat going to her house because she always had one of these.

i made this for my parents and we all loved it! my pie didn't set up as well as i would have thought it would, so at my step dad's suggestion we put it into the freezer. man oh man was it good. it was really rich and chocolately! the only thing i'd do differently is maybe next time i'll use a little less sugar
thanks for posting!

update: i tried this again with a little less sugar, and let it boil hard and for a little longer, and it set up percectly, and tasted great!
