This is the best chocolate pie we've ever tasted.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 square unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped
  • 1 tablespoon creme de cacao
  • 1 9-inch Meringue Pie Shell


Beat softened butter in the electric mixer until fluffy. Add the sugar gradually and beat until smooth. Melt the chocolate over hot water and add with vanilla to the creamed mixture. Beat in. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating 4 minutes each time.

Pour this mixture into Meringue Pie Shell (see below) and top with whipped cream flavored with creme de cacao.

Meringue Pie Shell


  • 3 egg whites
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts


Combine the egg whites, salt and cream of tartar and beat to a stiff foam. Beat in the vanilla. Add the sugar gradually, beating until peaks are formed and the sugar is dissolved.

Spread in a well-greased 9-inch pie tin. Build up the sides; sprinkle the bottom with chopped nuts. Bake in a 275 degrees F oven for 1 hour. Cool and fill.
