This is a scrumptiously rich pie that makes a wonderful Erev Shabbat Dessert. It came from a cookbook called HELP! My Family is Hungry. It is a simple to make, but very rich and "extra special. The author says she likes it best gooey and warm. However, my family prefers is after it has cooled and set up. SO it makes a great make ahead dessert! (You can see which way your family prefers it.) Just a little sliver will do it either way...because it is RICH. Because it is so rich, a little vanilla ice cream is always quite nice with it. :-)
The recipe called for an 8" pie pan (but we only have 9". So that is what we used and it turned out wonderfully). You could use any pie crust with this pie. A nut crust, graham cracker, a roll out and press in crust all would work well. We like to use a short bread recipes we are partial too and press that into a crust.
Pie crust of choice
1/2C chocolate chips
1C sugar (could reduce to 1/2!)
