The beauty of this recipe is that the filling takes just moments to mix, you just need to dump the ingredients and stir, then pour the filling into the pie crust and place it in the oven. The chocolate chips sink to the bottom creating a molten chocolate layer that oozes out from under the nuts. Bring this pie to Thanksgiving and your family and friend will love it!
