Chocolate Angel Strata Pie

READY IN: 2hrs 40mins
Recipe by Chrystabel

Rich, creamy, unique chocolate pie with a hint of cinnamon. Also a bit tricky because of the meringue, therefore not a beginners recipe. A legacy of my grandmother and a family tradition at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Make sure the eggs are separated well and all the directions are followed to the letter.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat egg whites, vinegar, salt and first 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon until soft peaks form.
  2. Add sugar slowly to egg white mixture while beating continuously. When stiff spread evenly over baked pie crust. Bake at 325 for 15-18 minutes or until meringue turns light brown and a knife inserted comes out clean.
  3. Next place egg yolks, chocolate chips and water in top of a double boiler or melt in a pan over boiling water. Stir constantly until mixture is smooth. Spread a thin layer of chocolate over meringue layer. Chill the remaining chocolate while doing the next step.
  4. Combine 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1 cup whipping cream. Whip until stiff. Spread 1/2 of mixture over cooled chocolate layer.
  5. Fold together remaining chocolate and remaining whipped cream mixture and spread over pie. There should be four layers:meringue, chocolate, whipped cream cinnamon, and whipped cream chocolate mixture on the top.
  6. Chill for at least 2 hours.
