I first had this delicious recipe when a friend dropped it off after my son was born nearly 18 years ago. I’ve made it so many times, my family and friends now refer to it as my Chocolate Pie. It is really my old friend, Kim D’s Grandmother’s. I appreciate that she shared the pie and recipe with me. This is super simple to make, and I think Kim’s Grandmother would get a kick out of the fact that her recipe is on the Internet.
