This pie is EXCELLENT! If your looking for a delicious chocolate fix, here it is! This is great to bring to a friends for dessert after dinner, or to a party at work. Awesome for any type of get together actually! I serve with a big scoop or two of French Vanilla ice cream, just to put a smile on everyones face, and add a few extra calories :) Prep time does not include time it takes to make the pie crust, or the chilling time.

I made this pie for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! (I would have taken a picture, but it was gobbled up too quickly! ) I omitted the nuts because one of my guests has a nut allergy, and topped it with ganache instead of hot fudge sauce, but otherwise made it according to the directions in the recipe. I will make this again!!

Came out beautiful and delicious. Only change I made was to use walnuts instead of pecans because they were cheaper. PS I have a pic but I can't get it to upload.

I can't believe this only has 1 review! Aren't there any other chocoholics out there besides us? :) We thought this was one of the best pies we ever indulged in, and my DD told me to hide the recipe where I knew it was at all times! This will be made again and enjoyed just as much the second time around!
