Chocolate Chess Pie

 Such a good pie!  It was like a molten lava cake in pie form!

Chocolate Chess Pie


4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
3 Tbsp. butter
3 eggs
1 egg yolk
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup half and half
2 tsp. cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust or a graham cracker crust.  (I used graham cracker)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Combine chocolate and butter in a small saucepan.  Melt butter and chocolate on low heat until melted.  Stir frequently.  Cool for 15 minutes.

Beat eggs and egg yolk.  Add sugar, half and half, cocoa powder, and salt.  Beat until smooth.  Whisk in chocolate and butter mixture.  Pour into unbaked crust.

Bake for 35 minutes, until set.  Cool and refrigerate for 2 hours.
