Chocolate Chess Pie

Chocolate Chess Pie

This week is cocoa week and there are so many goodies made of cocoa, but I didn't have to think very hard about what I'd like to make because this chocolate pie is one of my favorite things to eat!!  I think this is a recipe that my mom gave me.  It is so easy and quick and it so sooooo goood!.  I promise.   I've add meringue to it before because I like the chocolate part so much and it is so much easier to make than the custard chocolate pies.  This recipe makes two pies so if you only want one, you have to half the recipe.  I doubled it years ago so that I wouldn't waste the evaporated  milk.  If you want a rich chocolate pie and you don't have much time, give this recipe a try.  You can add a dollop of cool whip or whipped cream to top it off.  I hope you love it like I do. Yum!  Let me know what you think.

3 cups sugar
6 T cocoa
4 unbeaten eggs
1 stick of butter (melted)
1-12 oz can evaporated milk
2 t vanilla extract
2 unbaked pie shells

Mix together the sugar and cocoa.  Add the rest of the ingredients and pour into 2 unbaked pie shells.  Cook for 50 minutes at 325 degrees.
