I am a true chocolate pie lover. I cooked the pie as directed using one deep dish 9" pie pan and a ready made refrigerated pie crust (next time I will make it with my own crust). The filling sliced very well and yet it was creamy and delicious. I made the meringue using the 2 egg whites from the eggs used in the filling, adding 1/4 tsp of cream of tartar and 3 tbsp of sugar, and then baking at 400 degrees until golden. Over all very good.

I JUST made this this morning. It comes out thick and VERY CHOCOLATELY.. didn't need to add extra chocolate.. as a diabetic, it's too sweet to me, but in general, it's a super easy pantry dessert and it tastes rich!! Great surprise on this snowy day for DH and DS. amberngriffinco

For the fantastic flavor and texture, I highly reccomend this pie. However I (like others) saw that it wasn't going to thicken like it should. My can of evaporated milk was 2 oz. more than this recipe called for, so I stirred some cornstarch into it, and poured it into the boiling filling w/ some chocolate chips to keep the chocolate flavor from thinning out. Worked like a charm.
