I got this recipe from a 1983 calendar. It's tried and true and delicious. It's also very simple to make. I usually double the recipe, since one pie never seems to last long enough. Maybe that makes it a double double chocolate pie.
I've made it using chocolate almond liqueur instead of creme de cacao. It came out OK, and had a hint of a nutty flavor in the background.
Difficulty : moderate.
Precision : measure the ingredients.
