I love chocolate and peanut butter together, who doesn't? right? Well, I made plain chocolate pies for years and I thought I'd upgrade it a little.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This chocolate pie has such an intense chocolate flavor... so good. Fantastic for a holiday pie but easy enough to bring to a pot luck, this pie is delicious and beautiful when served. Using the different types of chocolate, amps up the chocolate flavor. No one will ever guess this started with a boxed pudding. Using 4 egg whites creates a tall meringue that easily covers the pie. Grating Reese's peanut butter cups on top, add a hint of peanut butter to every bite without being overpowering.

Note: Set the egg whites out to come to room temperature. It will allow the meringue to whip up easier. Toasting the meringue took us 12 minutes and we rotated the pie every 3 minutes or so. Also, make sure to chill this pie before serving. It makes slicing a cinch. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make My Chocolate Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare pie crust (homemade or frozen, your choice) and bake.
  2. In large saucepan, add all the rest of the ingredients for the pie. Using a whisk, stir constantly and cook until real thick.
  3. Remove and add to your pie crust.
  4. Using a metal bowl, add your egg whites (I use 4 for a better meringue) and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar.
  5. Using a mixer, beat until stiff. As you beat the whites, add 6 tablespoons of sugar, a little at a time, beating all of the time.
  6. When you get this done, add meringue to the top of your pie.
  7. Take a frozen Reese's cup and shave it all over your pie meringue.
  8. Brown in the oven.
  9. I set mine at about 375 degrees, turning occasionally, for even brownness.
