Directions

  1. Whisk together 2/3 cup sugar, flour, cocoa, and egg yolks in a saucepan. Stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick. I start with a whisk and then use a spoon to stir the custard as it cooks.
  2. Remove pan from heat, and add vanilla and butter or margarine. Mix well, and pour filling into a baked, deep dish pie crust.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until peaks form. Slowly add 1/2 cup sugar, and beat again until stiff peaks form. Spread on pie.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until meringue browns. Let pie cool several hours before serving.

I fixed this pie for a family dinner and got rave reviews. In place of the meringue, I used a whipped topping made from cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla with cool whip folded in. The combination of the 2 tastes blended wonderfully and was a nice change from meringue.

The taste was awful! The pie set up beautifully. I used a graham cracker crust, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

This pie was delicious, and very rich tasting. I used 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites, to cut down on the yolk content. I liked the fact that it was not all sugar also. This is my chocolate pie recipe from now own... Thanks Linda.

This was good, but next time I won't use so many eggs, I think 3 egg yolks would be enough. It was a little eggy.

I multiplied each batch of this recipe by 5 to make a whole bunch of pies for friends at Christmas. Not only is it delicious, but very easy.

I made this the Christmas afternoon when I didn't have enough desserts. It was made for my brother-in-law. He LOVED it!!!!! I used regular white milk instead of evaporated milk and it was Fantastic!!! It will be the only Chocolate Pie I make ever again.

WAAYYYY TO many eggs I use 3 egg yolks and 2 whites. Unless you like it eggy tasting, don't use that many eggs. And if you use that much egg whites there will be way to much let over. Been making this pie for years and my fiance would flip if it was ever done wrong this is his favorite dessert.
