    Too much vanilla extract. I had to redo it. Came out great the second time, but wasted an awful lot of ingredients given that I made two pies the first time.

    Now, I have never had a chocolate ice box pie, so I can't tell you if this is what your Dad was craving. However, I can tell you that this was divine! Creamy and chocolate-y and really rich. It was super easy to put together. I let mine set overnight and it came out just fine. The only thing I did not do is add the chopped candy bar, because I thought there was more than enough chocolate here to kill somebody. The toasted pecans were a nice touch, though!
