    Holy cow. That looks INSANE. And by that I mean the pie. Though, the puppy is pretty cute too!

    Hi, Tessa! This sounds wonderful! “Chocolate wafer cookies” for the crust: are those oreos? Thank you. πŸ™‚

      Joy, here's a link to an image of chocolate wafer cookies – http://momtidbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/

      If you can't find those in the store you can also use chocolate graham crackers or chocolate teddy grahams or something similar. I've never tried oreos with this particular recipe but that sounds delish!

    Hey, this looks amazing and I'd love to try it, but I wondered if only half of the Milk mixture used, or do you pour the egg yolk and milk mix into the other half that's still left in the saucepan?

      Hi Raisa,

      The directions say “Pour mixture back into saucepan” so yes, you use the entire milk mixture. Basically you're using the hot milk to temper the egg yolks which prevents them from scrambling into a yucky mess. Once the eggs are tempered you pour the egg-milk mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining milk. Hope that answers your question.

    Made this for my friend Mel’s birthday. I snuck a taste of the filling and it was beyond delicious. I loved how it was not insanely sweet and it was not too chocolatey. I just got the review from Mel and his wife and they absolutely loved this pie. They both commented on how silky and delicious it was. His wife does not even like chocolate and she stated that is was the very best chocolate recipe she has ever had and enjoyed. This recipe is a definite winner and was not complicated at all to make. I hope more people give it a try. Thank you Tessa for another winning recipe.
