This pie filling WILL. NOT. SET. It would almost make a decent pudding if not for the fact that it's horribly bitter. Don't waste your time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super delicious and easy to make! Made it several times and always came out perfectly, following the recipe exactly as written. Cream cheese was just about room temperature, not softened in the microwave or anything. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did an extra 1/4 c. of sugar in the pudding recipe and I had some whipping cream and used that instead of milk….oh good Lord it's good! I had to add some more cream to thin it out a little but man it's good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wish I had read the reviews. I didn't have any trouble with it being runny but it was way too bitter. Had to add more sugar and more milk. Still its just "okay" tasting. Will never make this again. If you do make it cut way back on the cocoa powder item not reviewed by moderator and published
Needs at least 4 more tablespoons of sugar in the chocolate mixture, and at the minimun 3 more tablespoons of sugar in the whipped cream! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Cool, creamy pie. Using Cocoa gave it a different kind of chocolate taste. Beware of the instructions & don't do what I did...I dumped all the ingredients in a bowl as suggested, then began using hand mixer...wrong!...cocoa powder w/milk flew up out of the bowl everywhere in my kitchen...even on me & my clothing...took longer to clean everything up than make the pie...geez! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe and the filling did look a little thin. So I added about a dozen crushed up Oreos to the mixture, then put it in the fridge for a few hours to set up. The crumbs softened up, melted right in and tightened up the filling perfectly for slicing. Instead of making whipped cream from scratch, I used canned fresh whipped cream on top of each slice. Perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I followed the recipe. If yours came out too runny the only thing I can think is that maybe you heated to soften your cream cheese first? Or measured out the wrong amount of milk or cream.I changed it up just a tad. I used half and half and cream (a little more H&H than cream in place of the milk. Very nice recipe, easy and tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Cut back on the cocoa powder, 1/3 cup gave it a bitter after taste. I had to add 1/2 cup powdered sugar to the pie filling mix and it was still slightly bitter tasting. Cut down on the heavy cream, way too much for toppping this pie, half the amount would bebetter. The topping was twice as high as the pie itself and unless you LOVE whipped cream it is over powering. item not reviewed by moderator and published
VERY GOOD FOR THE EASE IN MAKING. For those of you who have had problems with the whipped topping, I would suggest that you just use Cool Whip. Of course, it doesn't taste as wonderful as true whipped cream, but it's just fine. Cool Whip makes a "Lite" topping that is very good as well. It also makes one that is "Extra Creamy" that is even better. Our family consists of just two old folks, so we couldn't possibly eat the whole pie in one day. That is another reason I use Cool Whip and just put it on the piece of pie when it is served. item not reviewed by moderator and published
