German Sweet Chocolate Pie

When I was in college, many moons ago, a bunch of us would walk over to nearby Cameron Village (shopping area)to the K&W Cafeteria for Sunday dinner. This pie was my very favorite dessert... and I was thrilled to find this recipe on the label of Baker's sweet chocolate. *Mumble mumble* years later, it's still a favorite.
