Granny’s Cocoa Cream Pie

This Chocolate Meringue Pie is one of my favorite recipes. I can’t really tell you where it came from, who invented it, or who it “belongs” to (a big deal in the food blogging world), but what I can tell you is that it’s magic.

Magic in that it can disappear. Right before your eyes. Before you know it, it’ll be completely gone without a trace. Except for maybe the telltale smudges around a few little mouths 🙂

This was my Uncle Bud’s favorite pie. His wife, my Aunt Marjorie, was one of the best cooks I’ve ever known. Aunt Marjorie taught me Chemistry and maybe Biology, I forget, in high school, but I believe she was actually a home economics major.

She was an absolute whiz in the kitchen and a wonderful homemaker along with being a professional, career woman. I have to believe she would thoroughly approve of my chocolate pie recipe. And I have no doubt you will, too!

Fair warning – this pie is very sweet and very, very rich. You’ll only need a small slice (yeah, right). It easily serves 8 and could stretch to 10.
