This was my first time making this pie, and boy howdy, it was good! and pretty easy too, my favorite combination's.
You'll need: 4 eggs, 1 cup of butter, 4 squares (1 oz each) of bakers chocolate, dash of vanilla, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, and 1 pie crust.
melt your chocolate in the microwave, just until it's stir-able. About 45 seconds to 1 minute should do you just fine.
cream together your softened butter and sugar.
and ready your pie crust for the oven. I had some problems with this crust, which was just another reminder to me why I'm not a baker, I'm more of a cook.
once the butter and sugar are creamed together, slowly drizzle in your chocolate. I made a HUGE mess when I did this. the side of my mixer was covered in chocolate. This is why you won't see that side in any pictures for this. It was a mess.
add about 1 tsp of vanilla too.
Turn your mixer on medium and add one egg. About five minutes later, add the second. Five more minutes, the third. Five more minutes, then add the fourth. Keep your mixture going this whole time.
and please don't forget about your pie crust in the oven. A softer crust is better. actually, I think a graham cracker crust would be the best. next time!
Pour the mixture into the crust and PUT IT IN THE FRIDGE!!! Don't slice right into it. Give it time to set up and do it's thing. AT LEAST two hours in there, but overnight was better. It was still pretty soft after two hours.
This was pretty rich too. That slice up there? I could only eat half of it, it was too much for me! Captain Jax on the other hand. . .ate half that pie!

Melt the chocolate in the microwave for about 45 seconds to 1 minute, until it's stir-able. Cream together your butter and sugar. Add the cooled, melted chocolate and vanilla. Turn your mixer to medium and add the 4 eggs, each 5 minutes apart and let your mixer run the whole time. Pour into your baked pie crust and let it set up in the fridge for AT LEAST 2 hours. Longer is better!
