    Cooking to Perfection's Note:

    This chocolate cream pie is rich and slightly tangy. The melted chocolate folded into the meringue is a nice accent to the creamy and rich chocolate filling. A nice summer time dessert. (Prep time includes chill time)

      My family and I did not care for this pie. As stated, there was a tart taste to the filling. We prefer the traditional chocolate flavor. Not really anything bad about the pie, just didn't care for it.

      Okay, I made the pie. I found the texture was perfect. I got a firm filling by cooking it just a tiny bit longer. The richness was off the scales. It was a bit too rich for me. In my former career I was the baker for a restaurant. I will use the recipe again but cut back to 2 ounces of chocolate instead of 3.

      Wonderful Pie, I was so pleased with the results. DH had requested this to go with Easter Brunch and everyone raved about it and the rich, creamy chocolate flavor. I left out the chocolate in the meringue as I was afraid of what it'd do to the whites - but next time will diffently try it. I followed another reviewers suggestion regarding doubling the cornstarch for a firmer pie and it couldn't have turned out any better. Thanks Elaine for a recipe that I'll be using from now on.
