Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch pie

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C.) In a medium bowl, combine crumbs, and 1/4 cup softened butter. Press onto the bottom and sides of an 8 inch pie pan. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes. Cool.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate until melted. Stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream 1/2 cup butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in melted chocolate, salt and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating 5 minutes for each egg. Stir in chopped cherries. Spread into cooled crust. Chill 4 hours.
  3. Before serving, garnish pie with whipped cream and maraschino cherries.

I made this pie for my father's birthday and it was a big hit. It was smooth and creamy and the crust was wonderful!

sooo good....I'll never go back to box cake again. Note: I accidentally used a can of dark cherries in heavy syrup instead of cherry pie filling and it still came out really good.

I made this for a casual dinner party and it wasn't a hit. I cheated and used a pre-made Nilla wafer crust (which is slightly bigger than 8"). When I made the filling, it wasn't nearly enough to fill the crust (and I can't imagine it would have even filled a 6" crust), so I whipped up another batch to fill the crust. The filling has a gritty, sugary consistency. Had I not doubled the chocolate, there would have been very little flavor, other than sugar. The other reviews don't seem to be for this dessert, either, alluding to a "cake", so there wasn't much to go on there. THANKS for the recipe!
