"This recipe is courtesy of Angus Barn in Raleigh NC. Thad Eure Jr. and Charles M. Winston opened the Angus Barn in 1960 when this part of Raleigh was a pastoral, country setting. Today, the Angus Barn is in the midst of the action between the RDU Airport, Raleigh and Durham. It is consistently ranked as one of the TOP 100 restaurants in the U.S. When you pay your bill, this recipe is given to you on a beautifully decorated card. It is a most requested recipe from their restaurant. I have had the pleasure in indulging in this sinfully delicious dessert on several occasions, OK I'll be honest, EVERY TIME I go to NC I go to Angus Barn LOL... It is incredibly delicious with the richness only chocolate can bring and let me tell you, your chocolate craving will be gone with the indulgence of this pie! The time is not including making your own pie crust, if that is what you use."
