    Like others have noted, there is something off about the cocoa to sugar ratio in this recipe. It makes it overly rich and taste like straight cocoa. The meringue turned out good. And no I didn't just not make it right, I'm not an idiot and I've been baking since I was 12 so I know how to make a pie. I wouldnt recommend this recipe.

    Either too much sugar or too little cocoa. It looked good, set well but I really don't recommend the chocolate filing. I would never make it again.
