Ingredients

1 box
(12 oz.)
Chocolate wafers
7 Tbsp. Unsalted butter, melted
1 cup 2% milk
1 envelope Unflavored gelatin
2 cups Heavy cream
3/4 cup Plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
8 oz. Semisweet baking chocolate
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup Phil’s Fresh Eggs Cage Free Liquid Egg Whites (save yolks for another use)

Directions

  1. Place chocolate wafers in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add melted butter and stir until well combined. Press into an 8-inch springform pan, evenly coating the bottom and lower half of the sides. Cover pan with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Pour the milk into a small bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over the milk, and let soften for 5 minutes. Place the cream and 2 Tbsp. sugar in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add gelatin mixture, and stir to combine. Remove from heat. Add chocolate and vanilla extract; cover, and let stand for 3 minutes. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. Pass mixture through a fine sieve into prepared cookie crust; leave behind any undissolved chocolate to prevent filling from becoming grainy. Return filled crust to refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.
  4. Place the egg whites and remaining ¾ cup sugar in the heatproof bowl of an electric mixer, and place over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir constantly until the egg whites are warm to the touch and the sugar is completely dissolved, about 3 minutes. Attach the bowl to the mixer, and use the whisk attachment to beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes. Raise speed to high and beat until stiff and glossy but not dry, about 1½ minutes.
  5. Remove pie from refrigerator. Using a rubber spatula, drop meringue on top, lifting to create tall peaks. Use a kitchen blowtorch to brown the top of meringue peaks, or place under a broiler, watching carefully since it will brown very quickly.
  6. Chill the pie in the refrigerator. Serve cold.
