Grandma's Chocolate Pie

Do you ever get the craving for something homemade and seriously sweet? If so, you may want to "pin" this recipe for later! It's a super yummy chocolate pie recipe that my family loves and never last longer than 2 days in my house! It does good to cool all the way before someone {usually me} decides to dig in! 

I actually found this recipe on one of those cute pie plates that I picked up our local Goodwill store. I have always loved those pie plates and wanted a collection of my own! I hope to find more on my journeys and hopefully the recipes of them will be as good as this chocolate pie one! 

2 cups of sugar
3 heaping tablespoons of flour
3 heaping tablespoons of cocoa
3 cups of half & half or milk
3 tablespoons of butter
vanilla (to taste)
3 eggs, separated
1 baked 9" pie shell (I recommend deep dish!)

  • Cook first four ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat until thickened. 
  • Whip egg yolks until creamy, add small amount of hot cocoa mixture, stirring constantly.
  • Combine 2 mixtures into saucepan, cook until thickened; add butter, vanilla, allow to cool.
  • Fill shell with mixture, top with meringue
  • Bake at 350 degrees for ten minutes 

{Meringue Topping}
  • Place egg whites in a glass/ceramic bowl (these work best) with 1/8 teaspoon of salt. 
  • Beat at a low speed to begin with slowly adding a small amount of sugar as you mix. 
  • Your meringue will begin to thicken and rise the more sugar you add
    (4 tablespoons is recommended).

Tada! A yummy chocolate pie for you and your family! I hope they enjoy it as much as we do! Oh yeah! Be sure to have a slice with a big ole glass of ice cold milk! It hits the spot every time!!!
