    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    This chocolate pie is not only a Southern traditional dish, but my mom has to make 2 to take to church lunches. Most people go back for dessert only to find all the pie gone - the smart ones get their piece on the first trip through. This is pie is also served as "birthday cake" on most everyone's special day. And the only way to top it off is with a piled-high meringue!

      Redneck, this recipe didn't dissapoint me, or the others that ate it. I wish I could give you more stars. I tell you what, I'm being very good, and really watching what I eat. But, I tasted this in order to give a true review. Thanks to the help boards, I will share that I made 2 deep dish pies. I tripled the filling and just divided it between the two pies. It filled each of the pies right to the top, it couldn't have turned out more perfect. I also added an 8 oz container of cool whip to each pie (made it real high) and then I took my vegetable peeler and a Hershey Bar and made chocolate curls all over the top. I have never posted a picture, but this recipe has made me want to learn how in order to show this beauty. I did save a piece in order to take a picture. Hopefully it will work out and I can post a picture. Thank you so much for sharing you and your mom's recipe. I've already had several requests to make it again.

      I don't think I cooked this long enough. I made a cracker crust and skipped the meringue and put it in the fridge to chill. However, it was still delicious! We scooped it out of the pie plate and the cracker crust was a great topping to the pudding bottom. We loved it! Will try again and let it cook longer next time. Lovely, simple recipe! Amy, I hope your sweet mama isn't too horrified at what I did to her recipe! I know you are resting in Jesus!

      Mmmm mmmm good! I made this for 4th of July, with My No Roll Pie Crust #51537 and Weepless Meringue #20159. It is rich and thick, with a dark chocolate flavor. The chocolate layer was pretty thin so I may double the filling next time.
