    A must bring to friends/family gatherings

    reta griffith from enterprise, OR

    This recipe was simple to make and best of all the taste was devine. My friends all raved about how delicious it was when I brought it to my sister's bridal shower, now it a family favorite and a much requested bring to all gathers. I substituted the first layer of chocolate with melted "milk chocolate" chips. I melted them on the crust in the micro for 30 seconds, spread to create layer, then cooled and brushed with 1/2 the amount of melted butter

    Tasty

    Caryn Schwartz from

    I thought this recipe turned out well. I couldn't get the chocolate layer to spread without breaking my crust, so i substituted an easy-spreading chocolate ganache. I also left out the nuts. It turned out great. Just be sure to refrigerate it for the full amount of time--I made it at the last minute and everything sort of melted together, though it still tasted good. I'd make it again.

    I made this for a Birthday Bash and it was awesome! But make sure that you have enough time for all the steps of cooling and preparing. It is well worth it.

    Yummm!

    C. L. from Nebraska

    Have made this twice. Turned out great both times, but liked it even more the second time when I used milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. Also, using a double boiler to melt the ingredients insures a consistant end result.

    YUMMMMMMM

    Camilla McElfish from austin, TX

    I made this for Thanksgiving because our family does not like Pumpkin Pie. It was so easy I felt guilty serving it. This was such a HUGE hit several asked for it instead of their traditional Birthday Cake. You will NEVER purchase one from a Ice Cream Store again after making this recipe.

    Tin Roof Chocolate Pie

    Judy Walker from Lake Forest, CA

    I made this pie about 3 weeks ago for a Bunco party gathering, it did have a lot of layers to it, but once I got started making it the time seemed to go by. When I took it to the party that night, I got nothing but raves about it and had to share the recipe with others. It is a little rich, but still went a long way. I will definitely be making it again.

    Excellent

    Tasted absolutely wonderful & rich

    Julie Emery from Southern California

    This turned out to be a beautiful pie. It tasted fantastic. I did have quite a bit of extra chocolate marshmellow layer that didn't fit in my pie shell; so I divided it among several glass custard cups and topped with a dollop of cool whip, covered with plastic wrap and saved for a desert for another night - that turned out wonderful too, I'll be making again ... Thanks for the recipe

    Very good, very, very rich. My husband said a little less peanuts would be better, and next time to try a graham cracker crust. Might be different.

    Everyone at our Christmas Eve celebration was very impressed with the look of this tempting dessert. They were even more impressed with the rich, delicious taste. I found the recipe extremely easy to follow. The pie made a wonderful presentation and helped reinforce my reputation as the families official number one baker. Very rich flavor, serve small pieces.
