This is the most simple pie I ever made... It got rave reviews, though. So if you want something refreshing, inexpensive, gluten free and fast, make this! I prefer unsweetened corn flakes, coconut oil and 85 % chocolate, but if you want it a bit sweeter, you can also use sweetened corn flakes and semi sweet chocolate. Depending on the fat and chocolate you use, the pie crust will be more or less hard; I found it best to layer the bottom of the spring form with non stick baking paper, so you can easily slip the pie onto an even plate. Use a sharp pointed knife to cut it. Cooking time is chilling time.

- 150 g corn flakes
- 100 g butter or 100 g coconut oil
- 150 g bittersweet chocolate

- carefully remove spring form ring and serve chilled.
You are so right, this is a very simple pie. Very refreshing and not overly sweet. I used regular corn flakes for the crust. I added in some additional coconut and since only had a small amount left, I opted to toast it and sprinkle over the pie. Using parchment paper really makes removal and plating so much easier. My DH said I could make this again anytime. Thanks Mia.
