Debbie's notes for this recipe:
This was the recipe my grandmother always went to when she made a chocolate meringue pie. It was a hit with everyone in the family and it still is. Hope your family will enjoy it too!

Directions

1
FOR CHOCOLATE PIE FILLING:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2
Mix all dry ingredients (cocoa, flour, and sugar) together in a boiler. Stir to blend well.
3
Add slightly beaten egg yolks into the dry ingredients. Slowly add the milk a bit at a time until well blended, Over LOW heat, cook stirring CONSTANTLY until thickened (about 5 minutes.) Remove from heat.

TO PREPARE THE MERINGUE:
Put the 3 egg whites in a small deep bowl. (I use a chilled aluminum bowl.) Beat on high until medium soft peaks begin to form.
6
Slowly add the sugar and beat until the egg whites are glossy and holds firm, stiff peaks.
7
Spoon over the chocolate mixture in the pie crust, pulling the meringue into peaks. Bake in a preheated oven until lightly browned.

You mentioned adding the butter, but butter is not listed in the recipe

Thank you for catching that for me. I always try to be so careful not to do that, it is so easy for me when I just post one item at a time rather than just using cut and paste. I am so computer spoiled. I have made the correction. Thanks again for finding the error! Blessings!!!
