RECIPE BACKSTORY
The pie is a delicious twist on a classic chocolate chess pie. I thought of it one day after a craving for chocolate and carmel. I've been told I should call it a Twix pie! Easy to prepare, this dish is great for parties and bake sales. The best thing about this dish is all the sugar can be substituted with Splenda! Be careful though - it's hard to just eat one slice!
