Iron Skillet Chocolate Pie

My dad loved chocolate meringe pies and I tried many recipes before finding this one in a Virginia cookbook. It was by far his favorite and he was a chocolate pie conniseur. His way of asking me to make it for him was to come by and ask me if I knew anywhere that sold these pies. It is a little time consuming but so worth it! This one's for you, Pop!
