I made this pie when our children were small and just "revived" it a couple of years ago. It is a favorite of one of our sons. I have also carried it to family gatherings and it is always enjoyed.

When I saw this recipe I knew that I had to try it.  I am always looking for that perfect recipe to satisfy my chocolate cravings.... and this sure did the trick!

Give it a try - I'm sure you'll enjoy it. And if you have any trouble with the mixture thickening properly, just add more flour and cocoa. The Test Kitchen
