    That’s a scary story behind Snow Ghost pie, the tale of the “cunning old devil” handyman that tempts little kids to steal from their own grandmas! All we ever had was a mildly drunk cleaning woman who came once a week to break things.

    My mother used to make this for me as a kid. I loved it. She probably has the same clipping in her recipes, somewhere.

    I have had this recipe since 1977. I got it from a friend and have alwys wondered how it originated. But I just moved and can’t find anything. Is there anyone that would email the recipe to me? Adllide@gmail. Thank you all so..much. Diane

    Thank you for posting this, this was my mothers favorite chocolate pie recipe as I was growing up. Unfortunately it was lost a few years ago, now I can send it to her to make for my kids.

    Anyone that has the original story from the 60″s I’m looking for what magazine and issue date. Think it was woman’s day but not sure. I’m interested in getting original
