      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!

      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.
