This pie was very good, except for the fact that it tasted like chocolate butter. I must say that it was very easy to make, however it was not healthy and too buttery. Maybe it could be better with a little less butter.

My daughter and I made this pie over the weekend, and it turned out perfectly. We followed the recipe exactly, adding the pasteurized eggs one at a time, and beating between each addition. It was so easy, and it was a huge hit when we served it. I've had this pie at restaurants, and I think the one we made was even better. What a winner!

I feel mislead by Pillsbury on this recipe. The worst pie I have ever made! I wouldn't even let my family eat it! It did not look like the photos. I feel an igredient may have been left off the receipe advertised in TASTE of HOME Magazine so I referred to the Pillsbury website. No change in the receipe. I prepared as instructed, used eggbeaters as my husband freaked out on the no cook eggs clause. My pie was gritty, did not come close to the photo appearance and reminded me eating a big pile of chocolate flavored butter. The picture resembles the version of a "cooked over the stove" pie

Has anybody tried this recipe with less butter???? That's a half a pound of butter you're talking about. Would just one stick work?

Make sure to add one egg at a time and mix for the full 2 minutes (I think I did 2.5 minutes) on high. I used a hand mixer.

I made a chocolate wafer crust with wafers dark brown sugar and butter...Not a fan of regular pie crust. I read all the reviews. I did put the sugar in the processor because I was nervous after reading reviews. It didn't make a difference. I found my mixture to be grainy until I added each egg one at a time and made sure I spent as much time mixing the eggs one at a time as directed maybe a little longer, and I also used regular store bought eggs. I did my research and decided to go for it. After that process the mixture for the pie was PERFECT! Topped it off with home made whipped cream.

Made Pumpkin Pie and this pie for Thanksgiving. There is no French Silk Chocolate Pie left. My family loved it; especially my daughter-in-law. What a hit I was. Easy to make and just deliciious. Thanks Pillsbury.

You must love chocolate... it has such a good rich flavor I was in heaven. My critic's loved it... my step daughter, my husband, my sister and my mom. Best of all it is so easy to make.

I followed the directions on the Pilsbury box for the pie crusts but when I "pricked" the sides of the pie before baking the sides kept collapsing. I went through 3 crusts before I got one 1/2 way decent. The sugar never mixed enough (even after more than 5 minutes of beating) so I strongly suggest putting the sugar through a food processor, as a previous reviewer suggested, to make it more fine - because you're not baking the mix, the sugar doesn't melt and so it was a bit grainy still.

This is a fantastic pie. Although I agree that the color is not as dark as the picture, the taste is wonderful and the texture always turns out fine for me. You can give the sugar a whirl in a food processor if you feel it is not fine enough. My friends & family love it. I also use the pasteurized eggs, but have tried the egg product which also worked fine.
