I'd never had chocolate pie before, and was inspired by an American movie I saw the other day. I also don't have a sweet tooth but my family do, especially for chocolate. So I chose the recipe with no fuss involved and was so impressed with the results I took the present picture of it. But I used my own basic biscuit base, like making a big round shortbread with the chocolate poured on top. Like one of the other reviewers, I substituted the water with milk.

This filling set up nicely and had a terrific texture, but it was lacking in flavor. It was missing any type of richness and tasted kind of watery. I would try using a different liquid, such as milk, in place of the water.

We have been making this pie for 3 years now...It is a family staple at Thanksgiving, and incredibly easy to make. Also great in a Graham Cracker crust!!!! Thanks!!!
