This is one of the MOST decadent desserts I make for my husband! It's so yummy! His three favorite desserts are Pecan Pie, Cheesecake and most anything with Dark Chocolate and this dessert has all three. It seems as though it would be difficult to bake but it really isn't but the results make it seem like it is! I do make my own pie crust but any frozen deep dish pie crust will do.
