      This is my pie of choice from Baker's Square. Boy, is this rich! It's hard to believe that only 6 ounces of semisweet chocolate can produce such a wickedly dark chocolate flavor. I made my own caramel sauce. Everyone loved the pie. I recommend you give this pie a try the next time you want to impress someone.
