Mabel's Chocolate Marvel Pie

Dorinda Willard Recipe

By Dorinda Willard DeeWill

Prep Time:
Stove Top

This is the pie my mom alway's made especially if company was coming. I continue to make it company or not for 30+ years. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.


1 pkg
6oz chocolate chips
2 Tbsp
white sugar
3 Tbsp
whole milk
egg yolks*
1 tsp
egg whites*
single pie shell, cooled- store bought or homemade

Directions Step-By-Step

Take first 3 ingredients, put in a double-boiler (or heatproof dish in pan over hot water ) medium heat for a gentle boil. (or you can nuke ) Stir until melted. Cool.
When chocolate mixture is room temperature, by hand add egg yolks one at a time, beating until each is well incorporated, then add vanilla. Set aside.
Now with your mixer, beat the 4 egg whites until very stiff. Carefully fold into chocolate mixture. Pour into your cooled pie crust. Put in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled about 2-3 hours.
Top with whipped topping of your choice, Redi-whip, Cool Whip or your own homemade. You can top this with chocolate shavings/curls, jimmies or mini chocolate chips.
*we never had a problem because the eggs are uncooked. The pie is refrigerated, not left out. You can use pasturized eggs if you prefer. Enjoy!

Right Nellie - thanks. I totally agree. I did report at the bottom of the page to "Technical Issues"... but I'm sure they're being inundated with the same message. We'll just hang loose and see what comes of it tomorrow........... afterall - tomorrow is another day.

they are making a lot of changes..probaly just a glitch..I still have the option to turn mine off or on in my settings..alto I cant reply..if I really wanted to respond I would go to their page and choose that option I guess..or it could be a way for them to try and diffuse a lot of nonsense and they are trying to slow down the landslide while they figure out what they can do to stop the nonsense..if you really wanted to try and fix it contact them they are good about responding

Hi all....... don't ya'll just love this technical bull-pucky - haha - and my husband is the director of the technology department at a school district. I love the old fashioned way of communication - pick up a telephone or write a postcard/letter. Course you can't even do that these days w/o some technical crap being a problem, or snail-mail becomes more expensive with less service. Hey folks - that's what THEY call progress...... whoever "they" are!

the little green light ya'll are talking about shows if someone is online to chat I guess. I didn't know JAP had a chat line though. Or maybe it's just to show who's online or not -- like who cares if you're online at the computer or in the bathroom or out taking a dog for a walk?.... who cares, if you can't "chat" with them online. I mean REALLY??!!!!

Poor Mabel and her chocolate pie........... see what happened? I think I'm no longer a chocoholic after this chocolate pie escapade - course poooooor Mabel gets the brunt of it - and I bet her pie is really yummy. I'll never know :)

Again - Rose Bouquet - if PM doesn't work soon, you have my home email address. Write me there. If you don't have it, say so, I'll send it to you few roses :) No thorns allowed heeeheee.

See ya later gals - hope the technical difficulties get fixed soon. I found the email address to contact JAP: OR I guess we can click on the bottom of the page and report technical issue.

I'm probably just repeating what others may have already said.
Bye for awhile ~ share a smile.

g'nite.... yellow rose
