DIRECTIONS

  • Place first 6 ingredients in a blender and blend until well mixed.
  • Pour mixture into a Pyrex or microwave-safe glass bowl or measuring cup.
  • I use a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup with a handle.
  • Add butter to chocolate mixture.
  • Microwave on HIGH for 10 minutes.
  • During last 5 minutes, stop and stir every minute.
  • (if your microwave doesn't have a turntable, you will need to turn the bowl, also, during the last 5 minutes.) By this time, chocolate mixture should be thickened.
  • Remove and let cool slightly.
  • Add vanilla and continue to cool.
  • Pour into a cooked 9-inch pie crust which has been allowed to cool.
  • For Meringue: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Beat egg whites until foamy.
  • Gradually add sugar and continue beating until meringue becomes stiff and glossy.
  • Add vanilla and mix in well.
  • Spread meringue over cooled pie filling in pie shell.
  • Spread all the way to the edges and make"seal" over the filling.
  • Place pie on cookie sheet.
  • Bake in 350°F oven approximately 10-12 minutes or until peaks of meringue turn golden brown.
  • Cool thoroughly before slicing.
