The name says it all! The crunchy walnuts perfectly complement the smooth chocolate custard. My boss says it's the best pie he's ever eaten.

ok the first time we made this it turned out like fudge. We made it again and realized we messed a ingredient up. It turned out perfect! I gave this recipe a bad review at first. I am now recanting that review and giving it 5 stars. yes!! I will be making this again.


Very good chocolate pie! Next time, although, I am going to double the recipe so it fills the pan completely. Very dark, dense, rich chocolate pie and easy to make.


This was a very delicious pie. The top bakes up crunchy and the middle is like pudding. The only bad thing about this pie: waiting for it to cool. But once it sets up it is perfect. This is going in my permanent recipe file. I didn't want to share. If you are a chocolate lover, you will love this wonderfully rich pie.
