Chocolate Cream Pie with Marshmallow Meringue – A simple pecan pie crust, rich chocolate cream filling and marshmallow meringue topping. This pie is luscious!
Chocolate Cream Pie with Marshmallow Meringue is the pie you will want to serve for any occasion.
This is the perfect pie for anyone that loves chocolate cream pies but this one has that marshmallow meringue that gives it that little extra something. And one of my favorite parts is the pecan crust. It goes so well with the chocolate cream filling.
This is a rich, decadent yet light and scrumptious dessert. Very easy to make and yet company worthy. Add some whipped cream and a few mini chocolate chips to decorate and you have a pretty presentation for company.
I really think the combination of the pecan crust and the marshmallow meringue make this quite different than your average chocolate cream pie. Plus the filling isn’t made with pudding. No sir, this is all homemade. Yet is really is a simple pie to make. Make it once and you will make it again guaranteed! This pie is quite different than my Chocolate Meringue Pie .
The filling is simple to make Using a medium saucepan, combine the milk and chocolate chips. Place sauce pan over high heat and gradually stir until melted, about 1-2 minutes. In a large bowl, mix together the egg yolk, and sugar until the eggs turn a pale yellow. Mix in the cornstarch, salt, and vanilla until combined. Gradually combine the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. Make sure you are whisking the egg mixture while pouring the chocolate mixture into it to avoid scrambling the eggs. Pour the combined mixture back into the sauce pan and place on the stove on medium to high heat and bring to a boil while gradually whisking the mixture. Remove from heat and whisk for about 2 minutes.
The filling is not as rich and chocolatey as your normal chocolate pie but believe me this pie is just as delicious. It is a must make recipe!
It goes quick so you may want to make a couple if your serving it for a family function or holiday.
