Sounds interesting. Do you ever make your own pie crust or do you always buy the shells?

Hi rjsadowski :-) Thanks you for reading and becoming a follower. I have celiac disease, so I have to make my own pie shells to make sure they're gluten free ... that will be a separate hub very soon :-)

I love the idea of adding chocolate!

LOL @ Flora ... I made both of these for my family's Thanksgiving dinner last night and they were a big hit. The one with the chocolate wasn't as sweet because the cocoa powder I have has a bit of a bite, but the meringue rounded it out nicely.
