Step 10, regarding adding the cremes and then "chill thoroughly" needs to be changed. When I chilled thoroughly, it set up like Jello and became a lumpy pie. There needs to be a caution to watch the mixtures as it chills and NOT let it set up. I should think that the congealing effect shouldn't occur until after adding the whipped cream and egg white. Also I used a block uf unsweetened chocolate and made long thin strokes with a vegetable peeler. What I got was a pile of chocolate shavings. The chocolate block was too dry to allow slicing long pieces.

Great tasting pie. I did cheat and used a boughten crust. It was a little time consuming to make but end results was well worth the effort. I did have a few chunks in the custard portion. I may have over cooked it. Will definetly make again.
