Sooooo decadent! This is definitely something to serve to someone with a sweet tooth :-). It is rich, fudgey and so wonderful! I followed the directions, as stated, and was rewarded with 'nirvana', that I can't wait to share with more friends. I did use a graham cracker crust and I think that was a perfect base. Thanks so much for sharing, Brenda!

This pie is heavenly! It improves with age and refrigeration. It's a snap to make, especially when using a pre-made crust. Thanks for sharing!
