      I haven't had real pie (with a crust) in years and when I came across this trimmed version of a rich cream pie I just had to try it. It delivers a deep dark chocolate gratification with all of that regret that we get when we really splurge on a full fat and sugar indulgence. Not only is the fat cut way back but I used Splenda for the sugar and it worked perfectly. Some Cool Whip Light and a light sprinkle of chocolate jimmies to top it off were plenty of "extras". I'm feeling very virtuous (and pleased) right now. The recipe is a snap to follow and I even took a short cut but melting the 2 oz's of chocolate in the heating milk in the first step. The crust was ready to pack into the pan in less than a min. Thank you Lainey, thank you! Made for Photo Tag.
