Ingredients for Chocolate Pie with Meringue:
1, 6 ounce box cook and serve chocolate pudding mix
3 C. whole milk
3 egg yolks
1 8-9" baked pie shell
3 egg whites
4 T. sugar
1/4 t. cream of tarter
pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Beat together the egg yolks and cold milk in a heavy bottomed medium sized sauce pan until well incorporated. Whisk in the pudding mix and cook over medium high heat until it reaches a rolling boil you cannot stir down.
Place the egg whites in a flat bottomed glass or metal bowl and add the cream of tarter and salt. Using an electric mixer beat until frothy. Add the sugar, sprinkling it in gently as you continue beating until soft but stiff peaks form.
