chocolate meringue pie

Photobucket

finally! a recipe! chocolate meringue pie, a recipe worthed months of waiting.
recently im in a retro-with-a-dash-of-southern-life living obsess and what else should i make other than pies to live up to that obsession?
this is a crowd pleaser dessert, serve with whipped cream instead if you are not a meringue-loving person like me.

chocolate meringue pie

1 9-inch pre baked pie crust

chocolate filling
recipe adapted from baked cookbook

1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons chocolate malt Ovaltine
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cornstarch
5 large egg yolks
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
5 ounces dark chocolate (60 to 70 percent cacao), coarsely chopped
2 ounces milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons whiskey (I used bailey's irish cream)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, Ovaltine, salt, and cornstarch. Add egg yolks and whisk until combined; mixture will look like a thick paste. Slowly pour in milk and cream, whisking constantly. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly; let boil for 30 seconds and immediately remove from heat.
Add chocolate, whiskey, and vanilla; whisk until well combined and mixture has cooled slightly. Let stand, at room temperature, for 15 minutes. If a thin skin forms on the filling while cooling, whisk until skin is gone. pour filling into the crust. Refrigerate for 4 hours before serving.
