Overall, a good recipe. The corn starch made the chocolate filling quite lumpy, but the chocolate itself tasted magnificent. The peanut butter crumbles didn't melt, to my joy, and were a very novel (and delicious) idea. I used a pre-made graham cracker crust, and it tasted just as good.

The pie was good, especially the peanut butter. I had read the other reviews before making it and very glad I did. The chocolate does not have to be lumpy as mine was not. I mixed the sugar, cornstarch and cocoa together and then added the milk. I then heated and brought to a boil, pour 1/2 in the egg yolks, and then back into the kettle and back to a boil. This will eliminate the lumps. This is how I make all my puddings, it turns out perfectly and I got rave reviews from all those eating the pie!!
