Chocolate Meringue Pie

Short crust pastries packed with chocolaty custard, the Chocolate Meringue Pie is every chocolate lover’s dream. This international delicacy is light and chocolaty, and the chocolate just oozes out when you cut it.

The fluffy and light texture of this dessert is due to the use of eggs in the preparation of the chocolaty custard. On top of that, a mixture of eggs beaten with sugar is also added before baking. All of this results in a dessert with an ethereal texture and heavenly flavour. Make sure you serve the Chocolate Meringue Pie warm.
