    very creamy
    This is a great recipe - wish I had time to make it more often.
    Delish! and pretty easy.
    This filling is perfect every time! Other chocolate pie recipes are tricky, but this one thickens up and sets perfectly. It cuts just right and the taste is fabulous! I use Valerie Enters' crust recipe from the pie contest on the Food Network a few years ago.
