I didn't put the Meringue on top of the pie because we don't like it, but make it as a Chocolate Cream Pie... We LOVED this pie! Thick and rich chocolate. Perfect with some Cool Whip on top... Yum!
The recipe has turned out great for me. The taste is chocolaty rich!!! First time at baking a chcolate pie without using a boxed pudding. Loved it. Easy to follow recipe too. Thank you.
This didn't turn out good for me either, same as Katybird. I followed the recipe exactly. I made sure to stir continuously using a wooden spoon in a non-stick pan on medium heat and I couldn't even let it come to a boil as it was thickening up so much it was pulling away from the pan. So I went ahead and put half into a bowl with the egg yolks stirred well return egg mixture to pan, still stirring continuously it was starting to smooth out but then before it could reach boiling point, it started thickening up so much it was pulling away from the pan again and cramping my hand. Please give me suggestions as to what may have caused this or how to prevent that from happening should I try and make it again in the future. Thanks, Regina
This turned out really good and was a big hit with our resident chocolate lovers at Christmas dinner. A couple notes: I made it the night before and left it in the fridge overnight. I used 4 egg yolks instead of 3 in the filling and 1% milk. The finished pie had a little bit of syrupy liquid in it. Apparently this is from the meringue and is completely normal, it did not change the taste of the pie at all. I also used a store bought graham cracker pie crust which worked just fine. It set almost immediately and cut into real slices. Great recipe.
I needed something chocolatey and didnt have any cream for silk pie so I decided to try something different and this recipe worked perfectly. I used Crumb Crust and it was awesome. I got my fix. Thanks for posting Carole Reu!!
I just wanted a good thick pudding to munch on for desert! I halved the recipe and my daughter and I devoured it. True to it's word this stuff is THICK! Yummy!
I loved this pie just as it is written because I prefer something denser that I can actually cut into a pretty slice (and my spoon still goes right through). But my husband preferred his grandmother's version (understandable), and she only uses a 1/3 cup of flour and does not bring it to a boil, just to the point of thickening. She also said that she forgot all about adding any salt. Hers tastes great, but it did not cut into actual slices.
Just wasn't chocolatey enough for us ... It just wasn't as good as I anticipated.
Chocolate lovers you gotta try this one! This pie is so rich and chocolatey. It more than satisfied my chocolate fix.
Loved this pie the flavor was just what I was looking for. DH wanted a chocolate Meringue Pie and this fit the bill. My only problem (and it's probably my technique as I'm new to this) was that it wasn't firm enough to hold it's shape when cut. I'm thinking maybe I didn't cook it long enough but will be making this again and I'm sure perfection will come with practice. That said the flavor of the rich chocolate can't be beat. Thanks Carole for a wonderful recipe.
