The best ever chocolate cream pie! Try it and see if you agree.
For the crust, use your favorite recipe. I generally use 1 1/3 to 1 1/2 cups crumbs, 1/3 cup sugar (sometimes less) and about 1/3 cup butter and bake for 8-10 minutes. To help loosen the pie from the pie plate, set the cold pie in a rimmed baking sheet filled with hot water. The heat from the hot water will melt the cold butter somewhat and make it easier to lift it.
