Talk about the best of both worlds! Here's our Chocolate Meringue Pie, a luscious combination of chocolate pudding filling with a meringue topping in one amazing pie.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (9-inch) frozen ready-to-bake pie shell
  • 1 (4-serving size) package instant chocolate pudding and pie filling
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 (.25 ounces) envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sugar

What to Do

  1. Bake pie shell according to package directions.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix and milk; mix well. In a small bowl, combine gelatin and hot water and beat with a fork until completely dissolved. Add to pudding mixture; mix well. Pour into pie shell; set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to Hi Broil.
  4. In a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Add sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over top of pie filling, sealing to edge of crust.
  5. Using a spatula, form peaks in meringue, and broil 2 to 4 minutes, or until meringue is golden. Let cool 10 minutes, then refrigerate 4 to 6 hours, or until pie is firm.

I followed instructions to the tee. WHAT never set up. Only milk we had was 1 or 2 %. I Have no idea what I did wrong. Any idea?

Hello! The Test kitchen is not sure why your pudding did not set up. If using gelatin, that always firms up whatever using it in. We do recommend using whole milk, not 1 or 2 percent, that could be the problem. Plus, try chilling pie for atleast 4 hours or until firm. Hope this helps!

hi we love it all. i am looking for a peach cobbler recipes. thank you.

If you don't like pudding mix, do what I do--make your own--it is always better tasting than the icky pudding mixes.

don't care for instant pudding mix. can we use cook and serve?????

I wouldn't see why not.. just follow box instructions for the pie filling :)

Sizzling Home Fries

The best home fries are still the ones made in diners, you know the places that are nicknamed "greasy spoons." There's just something special about the taste of potatoes slung around a sizzling hot grill and mixed with the flavors of eggs and bacon that can't be beat. Wait until you try these - they're a breakfast (or anytime) winner.
