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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Wow, this pie has an intense chocolate flavor. It's a creamy, decadent pie any chocolate lover will ask for a second slice of. Using 4 egg whites in the meringue makes for a tall meringue that easily covers the pie. Delish!

How to Make My Chocolate Pie

Step-by-Step

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