That pretty much sums up this dessert. It is honestly one of our favorite desserts.
My friend Valerie gave our family one over the summer and it was love at first bite for all of us.
It’s a miracle World War III didn’t break out at our house when it got down to the last piece. I think my son Zach ended up getting the last piece . . .dang him!!
I have since made this several times and there is always a race/fight for the last piece.
A few weeks ago I took dinner to my friend that had a baby and this is what I made for dessert. I got a text from her later that night telling me that the pie was amazing!
Make sure you let it chill long enough. In fact, it can easily be made the night before, just put the whip cream on an hour or so before you’re ready to serve it.
This is such an easy dessert to make and tastes like you spent hours making it. You will LOVE it!!
- 2 egg whites
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
- 1 large (5-7 oz.) milk chocolate bar (I use Hershey's)
- 3 Tbsp. evaporated milk
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup whipping cream, whipped and sweetened
Butter one 9-inch pie plate. Set aside.
Place egg whites in a large mixing bowl, beat with electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
Slowly add in the sugar, vanilla and vinegar. Continue mixing until sugar has dissolved and eggs form soft peaks.
Pour into buttered pie plate.
Bake at 300 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Turn off oven and allow to cool in oven.
In small sauce pan, melt chocolate and evaporated milk over low heat. Stir until smooth and chocolate is completely melted.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Allow to cool.
While chocolate is cooling, whip 1 cup whipping cream in large mixing bowl.
Fold cooled chocolate mixture into the whipped cream.
Pour into meringue shell (don't worry if the shell is cracked and sinks in the middle)
Allow to chill several (at least 4-5) hours in the fridge.
Whip 1 cup whipping cream (be sure to sweeten it with sugar and vanilla). Spread over chocolate mousse.
Top with chocolate sprinkles or chocolate curls.
Try not to eat the WHOLE thing!!!
