I made this pie for my sister who loves cherries and chocolate. Imagine my surprise when she said "too much chocolate". I tasted it and I thought the same. Will try this again, but will cut down the chocolate in the crust and cut it entirely from the topping. Will aso have to tweak the topping a bit. I was really hoping to like this, and I am sorry I could not give it more stars.
