Chocolate, chocolate ! What would we do without any chocolate ??

Right, maybe have a thinner waistline … One bite of this Chocolate Meringue Pie and you will forget about your waistline instantly – promise !

This is definitely not a Pie you want to make in a hurry.

The pie needs time to bake, cool off in the oven and then be chilled for at least 4 – 6 hours. (or overnight, which I prefer)

The Meringue topping is also a bit unusual and not the same as when you bake a Lemon Meringue, which has a somewhat chewiness to the meringue bit.

This topping is more dried out and also have a feather light cake texture, which is wonderful, by the way.

To describe the filling, I would say it is an ultra creamy, melt-in-the-mouth Cream filling and so very, very chocolaty !

Every bite is like a small piece of silky, chocolate heaven and the crust rounds everything off very nicely.

So, if you want this pie tomorrow night, you better make it tonight !

Patience and you will taste the Chocolate Meringue Pie as it is meant to be enjoyed. Think of it as a smooth, silky and a bit lighter chocolate ganache.

I will be making this for Easter. Looks amazing! Is it difficult to remove it from the cake pan? Any suggestions?

Paula, I lined the pan with baking paper, not only on the bottom but up and over the sides as well - this makes it easy to pull up {by the paper} and remove once the pie has cooled {replying here as your e-mail is not attached to your comment :-) }
