      i hate to give this recipe such poor reviews when everyone else is giving it 5 stars. the filling was way too rubbery and the chocolate was too mild and didnt taste like authentic chocolate. one of my family members described the chocolate as the last bit of nesquick in your glass when you take your last drink of it. i was really disapointed in this recipe, i had high hopes. im sorry but i definately wont make this again.

      I've made this pie for years. It was my daughter's favorite item from Luby's when we lived in Texas. After moving she longed for her Luby's chocolate pie. Thank goodness I found the recipe. It has been a family favorite for at least a dozen years every Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've shared this recipe over & over. Note to one of the reviewers, you don't use the marshmallows as a topping, they are mixed into the warm custard. That's what gives it the unique Luby's taste unlike any other chocolate pie. I always use graham cracker crust. Also, I temper the egg mixture with a little warm chocolate mixture before adding it to the hot chocolate mixture. Another tip is to place Sarah wrap on top of the pie to cool. This will prevent a skin from forming. Cool whip topping will last for days... that is IF the pie lasts that long!

      This pie is excellent... Much better than plain chocolate pudding pies! Thanks for a keeper :)
