When we lived in ND one of the local resturants mae a pie by this name. ABSOLUTELY DIVINE. This is not the same pie, but I am going to have to play with it and see if I can come close with a few alterations!! If It does, I will repost my altered version!!


1/2 cup butter or margarine

3/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 square unsweetened chocolate

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

Melt and cool unsweetened chocolate. Cream butter, add sugar and cream well. Stir in cooled chocolate and vanilla. Beat until creamy. Beat eggs into mixture one at a time. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and all trace of sugar has disappeared. Spoon mixture into baked and cooled 9-inch pie crust. Chill while making second layer.


1 (3 1/2 oz) pkg. instant vanilla pudding

1 cup milk

1 cup Half and Half

1/4 tsp. rum flavoring


Cool Whip

Mini chocolate chips

Prepare pudding mix with milk and Half and Half. Add rum flavoring. Spoon on top of chocolate layer. Before serving, garnish with Cool Whip and mini chocolate chips. Yields 8 servings
