Chocolate Chess Pie

If you've ever been to Angus Barn in Raleigh, you've heard of chocolate chess pie. My sister and I can't make it out of there without at least sharing a slice. In high school, we even had my mom make it for our special Sunday dinners once in a while. It is rich, gooey, and chocolatey. Basically everything I want in a dessert. I did not sign up to bring dessert to Thanksgiving tomorrow, so I guess I will just have to surprise them with this perfect pie. 


1 1/2 c sugar
3 T unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 t vanilla extract
1 can (5 oz) evaporated milk
1/4 c butter
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust


1. Mix together sugar and cocoa powder. Mix the eggs then beat them in. 
2. Beat in the milk, butter and vanilla. I let the mixture beat for about 5 minutes.
3. Pour prepared mixture into pie crust.
4. Bake at 350* for 45 minutes or until set. Let cool before slicing.
5. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some fresh made whipped topping.
