My family is very opinionated when it comes to pie, but this German Sweet Chocolate Pie is one we all agree on. It really is one of my all-time favorites!
This pie isn’t overly sweet or rich, which unfortunately means I can easily eat more than one piece. I usually make it for the holidays, but it would also be a great summertime pie. I like to use a chocolate crumb crust, but even a baked pastry-style crust will work.
I love that this pie goes in the freezer to set, so I can make it weeks ahead of time and I have one less thing to prepare for my holiday meal. In fact, I usually make two and keep one in the freezer for another day. Leftover pie should be stored in the refrigerator.
