Chocolate Chess Pie

Seriously. If you love chocolate, make this. Please oh please make this. It’s so easy, so rich, so chocolatey.

1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

Mix the sugar and cocoa together. Beat the eggs with a fork and mix into sugar/cocoa. Add the rest of the ingredients.

Pour into the pie crust and cook at 350 for at least 45 minutes. Mine was probably closer to an hour.

I recommend topping with ice cream or whipped cream.

Make sure the butter is not really hot when you add it, or else you’ll end up with scrambled eggs in your pie. Not so yummy.

I wanted to make another one and had ingredients for it except for the evaporated milk. I replaced it with some heavy cream I had on hand and it worked. That pie was way uglier, but actually may have been better tasting, even. It ended up with a crunchy meringue type crust on top.
