Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 minute
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup low-fat milk
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
2 tablespoons chocolate-flavored liqueur
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons meringue powder *
6 tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 9-inch pre-baked pie crust
1/2 (1-ounce) square semisweet chocolate, grated
Microwave both chocolates and the milk in a microwavable container on High, stirring halfway through cooking time, until melted and smooth, about 1 minute. Stir in the corn syrup, liqueur, and vanilla. Let cool completely.
With an electric mixer on high speed, beat the meringue powder and water in a medium bowl until glossy peaks form, 2 – 3 minutes. With a rubber spatula, gently fold the beaten meringue and whipped topping into the cooled chocolate mixture until no streaks of white remain. Spoon into the prepared crust; spread evenly. Sprinkle with the grated chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until frozen, at least 3 hours.
