We can’t decide what we like best about this Chocolate Cream Pie: its 5-star taste, its low cost per serving, or the luscious chocolate cream filling. The filling works with several different pie crusts, so feel free to explore beyond the pastry shell and use a graham cracker crust, chocolate cookie crust, shortbread crust, or your own homemade pie crust. This pie is so simple you could easily prepare more than one—and you might want to, because people can’t get enough of it. Anyone who loves chocolate will adore this pie, and we promise that anyone who tries a slice will be left wanting more.
