This recipe was given to me by a dear friend at a church dinner. This pie never is runny. If you opt to use a frozen prepared pie crust, use the deep dish kind.

WOW! We are picky! Hubby and I just got back from vacation and he loved the chocolate pie at dinner one evening. I tried some recipes and they turned out with a brownie texture, tried others and they were basically perked up pudding...But this recipe was IT! (Even better than the restaurant's!!! I made a homemade crust, doubled the vanilla and instead of a 12 ounce can of evap milk, I used 10 ounces. --(2) 5 ounce cans, used granulated sugar which quickly dissolved. Not runny or grainy or lumpy. 170 pound hubby ate 1 1/4 pies in 24 hour time span! LOL

Hubby and I agreed to give this two stars, only because it was a beautiful pie to LOOK at. Everything came together as it should and the cooking directions couldn't have been more accurate. Unfortunately, this pie is only worth the picture one could take of it. Weird texture, hard to describe, but somewhere between pudding and brownies and failing at both. While it looked like it would be chocolatey, it was not--in fact there was very little flavor at all, just simply like eating sugary mush. A major disappointment, as it looked so good we really were looking forward to our chocolate pie for dessert.

In response to the posting before mine. You do use granulated sugar. Do not use confectionary/powdered sugar or it will be a mess. I think the mistake that user made was she didn’t cook the mixture enough or stir it enough while it heated. I used granulated sugar and I heated my mixture before adding the egg. It was very smooth. I did make the mistake of not letting my chocolate mixture cool enough before adding the eggs though. So make sure your mixture is cool enough to add the egg. I went ahead and baked my pies though. With the strands of cooked egg throughout my chocolate mixture, but it still came out perfect! It was not runny and very smooth, and no one noticed any egg. I couldn’t even find it myself. This is a very good chocolate pie. I will make it again =)
