One of our holiday favorites. I think this came from Taste of Home. Awesome. Cook time includes chill time.

OMG, this chocolate pie was awesome. The fudgy layer had a creamy, intense choclate flavor. The cream layer was sweet and rich, too. I liked the real whipped cream topping. A chocolate lover's dream. I made this for Christmas and should have made two, because it went so fast and was the most popular of all the desserts I served. Thank-you, Nurse Di.
