"Probably the easiest chocolate pie recipe you will find, this one is a big winner with everyone who tries it. My Grandma served it every time she made pies for dessert and there were never any leftovers. I use store bought pie crusts, but my Grandma made them from scratch."

Yum. After I made this, I realized that I had also made it on the old site with a chocolate crust. This time I made it with a Pillsbury roll-out crust. Both were good......but I think the chocolate graham cracker crust really put it over the top. Either way it's so good and creamy. Thanks for sharing, Karen.

We liked this pie. I served it with cool whip and there is only one piece left. Next time I will double the recipe to completely fill the pie crust and keep the rest for pudding in cups.
