This recipe was given to me by my daughter. It's an old-fashioned pie that's rich and creamy. The meringue is great!

Wow, this is a delicious chocolate pie. The chocolate just melts in your mouth with every bite. The pie has a thick, rich chocolate filling. On top is the fluffiest meringue. Light with a hint of creamy texture, it indeed does not weep. It perches on top of the cake like a beautiful fluffy cloud. Definitely a chocolate lover's pie.
