Chocolate Chess Pie

I have been making a tons of different desserts lately.  Chess Pie is a popular southern pie and my mom recently shared this recipe from her friend Mary.  I remember my dad going on and on about this pie.  My Dad loved pie - but then again I think my dad loved all desserts!

My family loved it.  I liked it better without whipped cream but my hubby liked it better with.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Chess Pie

2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa... I sift together with sugar and mix with eggs.. I also use a mixer to mix it well
1/2 stick butter ( melted & mixed with above)
1 can condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all ingredients with mixer... put in unbaked pie shell

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until set.. it shouldn't jiggle too much in center but will continue cooking a little after removed from oven... Can be served plain or with whipping cream... even ice cream.. or it's good just by itself...

Note:  Using the mixer blends it well and makes a better consistency...

wow..This looks nice and easy. I made chocolate pie recently but this one looks a little more yummier. Also, would it work if I used a digestive biscuit crust with it instead of a traditional baked crust? or would the biscuits burn? Help!
