Always a big seller at Betty's Pies restaurant in Duluth, Minnesota. Since this contains uncooked egg ingredients, be sure to keep this pie cold or use within four hours of preparation.

I was expecting a little bit of darker chocolate flavor from this pie. While it was good, I probably wouldn't make it again. Just too darn sweet! Not that that's a terrible thing all the time. Just not my favorite right now.
