As good as they get, Member 2sweet2b4gotten

I'm not going back to my cocoa recipe! I thought I made a really good chocolate pie until I tried this recipe. I didn't have whole milk so I used half canned milk with 2%. Also didn't have salt free butter. I cut the salt amount to 1/8 teaspoon, spooned it into a delicious cooked pie crust. The rest is history! You do not need but one cup of whipping cream to make a great pie. I think it would be overwhelmed with two cups.
