    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This filling just on it's own is good enough to serve for a pudding or mousse, this is a beautiful pie that makes a wonderful after dinner dessert to serve to your guests. It can also be made using a graham cracker crust, if you are a serious chocolate lover, then you will love this pie. Plan ahead this pie needs to chill for 6 hours or more before serving. Please do not cut into it before the 6 hours, as it will not be set enough. Make certain to finely chop the chocolate well so it will incorporate into the hot cream, you can do this, and bake the crust well in advance.

      Kitty, <br/>Just made your pie and my family was blown away! I am an excellent cook and have many chocolate pie recipes that are to swoon for but this tops all of them. As a matter of fact, I think I will take this opportunity to tell you how much I enjoy most of your recipes. If there are several recipes that I am looking for and you have one also, I always pick yours.<br/><br/>Thanks for the good eats.<br/><br/>Bless you.<br/><br/>Mrs. Joyner

      Delish! Great recipe, and so much easier than the one I've traditionally made. I made it today for my son's birthday and it's now going to replace my other recipe that I've used for years. It set up beautifully, and that's always the biggest challenge for me. One little addition...we're from Kentucky, so rather than using vanilla I used bourbon. Yummy! Thanks so much.

      Best chocolate pie ever! I made this for my brother at thanksgiving who is the ultimate lover of chocolate cream pie. Out of 6 other pie choices this was gobbled up by everyone(my brother included)in minutes. I think it is safe to say that this will be around for many years to come. LOVE IT!!!!!! I am not sure I agree that it is a true dark chocolate lovers pie. It is very rich chocolate which makes it the best cream pie ever. Most taste too much like your typical jellp pudding pie and this is in a league all of its own. Use this recipe if you want a true chocolate cream pie!
