This is a great pie to bring to any gathering! We have it at Thanksgiving and Christmas - a favorite for chocolate lovers. Recipe has to be followed exactly, no substitutes, it will not turn out.

Delicious. I let the mixer run for quite a while when creaming the butter and sugar because I had seen that instruction in other recipes. It came out silky smooth.
