I made this pie when our children were small and just "revived" it a couple of years ago. It is a favorite of one of our sons. I have also carried it to family gatherings and it is always enjoyed.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

An old-fashioned chocolate pie that's fantastic for any occasion. It's creamy and full of chocolate flavor to satisfy every chocolate lover. The meringue on top is light, fluffy, and has just the right amount of sweetness. Decadent and delicious!
