I tried to make a chocolate pie today. I thought I followed the recipe to a tee, but after it cooled it was pretty watery. What did I do wrong? My wife thinks I didn't mix the meringue long enough? The recipe said to mix till you got stiff peaks. Another system is the meringue pulled away from the edge of the pan. The net was the chocolate filling was covered with a syrupy liquid and the crust was wet also. Any thoughts.
