    I don't even like really sweet desserts, but this was too intensely dark and salty for me, which is kind of this bakery's big thing (their signature cake is a sea-salt-chocolate-caramel cake). I'm not a fan of the trendy salt-chocolate thing, though.

    Other commenters are right: the recipe above forgets the 2 oz. of milk chocolate, which is supposed to be added in with the dark chocolate. I have this cookbook, and the recipe is otherwise correct. A couple of other suggestions: grease the pie plate (Trixie01 is right - it sticks). Also, I was surprised by how salty it tasted, even though I only added the 1 tsp. the recipe called for.

    I just watched him make this on the show and really wanted to hear his comments but Martha kept interrupting him!!! I hate when she won't let the guests talk!!! Why have others on if she is going to do all the talking/teaching?!!??

    Cookie crust sticks to the bottom of the pie plate, which makes serving a mess. I would not make this again.

    The chocolate wafers they mentioned were Newman's Own Organic Chocolate wafers. Don't forget to add the 2 oz of milk chocolate. Recipe does not call for it.

    Mistake in printed recipe! In the video they mention 2oz milk chocolate as well as the 5oz dark chocolate. I just made the pie and it wasn't very sweet. Also, the wafers were extremely hard to find.
