One Thanksgiving, about 20 years ago, I was wanting some different dessert, that did'nt take a lot of time or effort. Found this recipe under the label of a frozen cool whip. It was quick and easy and my entire family loves any kind of chocolate. Took a chance and have never regreted the decision to try something different. It has since become a favorite for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Everyone makes sure at least a week before each Holiday that Mom or Grannie is making "THE PIE" !!! Hope everyone loves it as much as my family. (WARNING!!! recipe is very rich.)
