Mini Meringue Chocolate Pie Recipe

 

 

 

A great holiday treat recipe:

 

What You Will Need:

–   1 box of refrigerated pie crusts

–   1 box of chocolate pudding

–   2 cups of milk

–   2 Tbsp of semi-sweet baking chopped chocolate

–   4 egg whites

–   ½ tsp of vanilla

–   ½ tsp of cream of tartar

–   1/3 cup of sugar

–   2 Tbsp of finely chopped semisweet baking chocolate

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Preheat your oven to 400°F.

2.   Remove pie crusts from foil and unroll/flatten on a floured surface.

3.   With a 3-inch round cutter.  Cut out 12 rounds from each crust.  Place into mini muffin pan.

4.   Place crust rounds on backs of 24 cups, pressing and pinching to form cup.  Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown.  Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.

5.   While you’re waiting for crusts to bake. 

6.   In a saucepan, heat pudding mix and milk to boiling over medium heat; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in chopped chocolate.

7.   Place baked shells inside mini muffin cups in pans (they will not fit, but will sit toward the top and keep crusts from tipping).  Spoon slightly less than 2 tbsp pudding into each cup.

8.   In medium bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until soft peaks form.  Gradually add sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, beating on high speed until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.  Fold in grated chocolate.

9.   Spoon meringue onto pudding in each cup; spread to edge of crust to seal well and prevent shrinkage.

10.   Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until meringue is light golden brown.  Cool completely, about 1 hour.  Refrigerate until filling is set, about 1 hour.

4.   When everything is melted, add the pumpkin, eggs and vanilla extract.

5.   Now, in a different pot, mix sugar, flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together.

6.   Once you’ve mixed together thoroughly, combine everything together.
