Probably the easiest chocolate pie recipe you will find, this one is a big winner with everyone who tries it. My Grandma served it every time she made pies for dessert and there were never any leftovers. I use store bought pie crusts, but my Grandma made them from scratch.

This will fix any chocolate lovers craving! Delicious and very easy to make. Made as written using a Oreo cookie crumb crust, I also added an additional 1/3 cup of chocolate chips. Thanks for posting you're grandma's wonderful recipe. Made for Photo Tag Early Fall 2011.

Used a very generous measure of chocolate chips while otherwise following the recipe right on down, & we had a wonderfully chocolatey pie! I did make my own regular crust this first time, but might switch to a homemade graham cracker one next time around! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday tag]

This is what chocolate pie should be! It's easy enough I can take it in the trailer when we go camping!
