Chocolate lovers really go for this pie. The filling is not too sweet, making a nice complement to the sweet meringue shell. Some family members request this pie for their birthday instead of cake!

"This was not the pie my mother used to make, despite the same name. This one did not have enough meringue to make a nice crust and the filling seemed watery, mealy and bittersweet. I will try to find my mom's recipe. Hers had a thick meringue crust and a smooth, slightly heavier than mousse filling, and walnuts in the bottom of the crust. It was amazing."

"This pie turned out deliciously, even after I forgot and left the crust on the counter for 5 hours! The finished result is so much more attractive than the photo and it was delicious! Even my dessert-hating husband ate seconds! Going to make it for my family's beach trip next week."
