    1. In microwave dish combine chocolate and 1/2 of the cream. Cook on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Cool to room temperature. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Set aside.

    Easy Recipe to follow and make. I thought I could cheat and not let it chill for as long as the directions said...WRONG!!!! The flavor wasn't as intense as when it had chilled the 8 hours!!!! Delicious pie~  -  13 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Also excellent as mini-truffle tarts! I made a cookie crust using 80 crushed vanilla wafers and 12TB melted butter and pressed that by spoonfuls into mini-muffin tins, baked it for 12 minutes, then filled with pie filling when crust had cooled. Delicious appetizer for parties!  -  26 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was crazy easy and just as good! I don't understand some reviews that criticize the intense chocolate flavor. Did they read the ingredients? I accidently used 1/3 cup of sugar rather than the 1/4 called for and I could have handled the lesser sugar (I'll be more careful next time). My store was out of chocolate cookie crusts, so I used a pre-made shortbread crust and I loved the contrast. I topped the whole pie with Easy Devonshire Cream from this site and shaved chocolate. My only problem is that I at the last piece last night and I don't have enough cream to make another right now . Thank you for my new "Go-To" chocolate fix!  -  07 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
