    My family loved this pie. Sweet and just the right amount of chocolate. Other home made puddings I have tried in the past were too dark. This was perfect. Next time I will double the graham crackers. I weighed all the ingredients, so I know I didn't make a mistake. The graham mixture was a little wet with butter and too thin when pressed out. Definitely dont use a deep 9" pie dish. There were no complaints though. Thanks for the recipe!

    Is it even possible to resist a pie like this? I have such a low tolerance when it comes to resisting sweets! I have a feeling that I already have diabetes because of this. To make things worse, I have several cavities in my teeth from eating way too much sweets. My dentist in revere ma scolded me several times already regarding this, but I'm really stubborn when it comes to the food I eat.
