I love Chocolate Pie, and I’m pretty sure I inherited it from my precious Granny. My Granny had several rough patches over the past few years, and took a bad fall this past summer.

I was able to take my kids and visit with her while she was in a rehab hospital. She was struggling to eat, but the ONE thing we could count on her eating at every meal, was a slice of Chocolate Pie with Graham Cracker Crust.

She passed not long after our visit, so I will forever cherish each moment I was able to spend with her, our daily phone calls, and many other fantastic memories. Food isn’t always sentimental, but I will always think of my beloved Granny when enjoying a slice of Chocolate Pie in her honor. I hope you’ll enjoy the recipe too 🙂

My mother made this when I was a kid or a recipe like it. I am in my mid 60's so it's a bit of nostalgia

Oh, this looks so good! I want to add this to the pies I'm making for Thanksgiving. Mom my used to make a chocolate pie, but hasn't in a while. It was my kids' favorite! I can't wait to try to make one!

I am passing this onto my sister. Her family loves the French Silk pie at the bakery but this looks like something her family would love and since the bakery has closed this will come in handy.
