I have been making chocolate pies like this for years. It also works for coconut (leave off the chocolate and add coconut, sprinkling coconut on the meringue). The only difference in this recipe and mine is that I use 1 cup of sugar and 6 T of cocoa along with 3T flour and 1 1/2 T cornstarch. This makes a little more filling and I like the texture better than using just cornstarch for thickening. I also use a wire whisk to stir.

This never did set for me, despite following the recipe. I'm not sure what went wrong. I'll keep looking for a good recipe for chocolate pie.

Very dark chocolate. Great flavor and easy to make, though I think I'd personally prefer the meringue to be a bit higher. My husband, who normally doesn't like chocolate pie, scraped his plate clean and wanted assurance there was going to be some left for later!

I made this pie for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. It was fast and so easy.

This was really good and very easy. I didn't have cream of tartar, but my meringue turned out just fine. Next time I may actually double the meringue because I like more, but all and all it was fantastic!

YUMMY!!! Not only is this very good, it's soooooo easy. No standing over a hot stove and stirring until your arm hurts.

Outstanding!!! I used the Hershey's Dark Cocoa instead of regular. The pie tasted like a Hershey Bar! No more standing over the stove constantly stirring!! The best chocolate pie ever!!!!!

This makes a wonderful base for banana or coconut cream pie also, just omit the cocoa. I do find that when I make it without the cocoa that I do have to cook it about a minute longer in the first step than I usually do to get it to thicken. I usually make a chocolate and a banana cream for when we have family nights and everyone is here. Slice 2 bananas in the bottom of your cooled crust and then add the pudding mixture after it is slightly cooled. I usually top with whipped topping and toasted sliced almonds. (If using coconut stir in 1/2 cup or amount desired into the mixture after stirring in butter and vanilla, then pour into crust.) All are huge hits at our house!
