Here is a different pie, for the holidays. A lovely contrast of the chocolate and eggnog layers. I love chocolate and eggnog, so it is a really special winter pie, for me. You could have it during other parts of the year, if you freeze some eggnog, for later use.

Chill time, not included in prep time.
