  • With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together for at least 5 minutes until sugar is dissolved.
  • (This step is very important to the final texture of this dessert).
  • Add melted chocolate and vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Wash and dry the two raw eggs. Add two eggs, one at a time, beating 5 minutes after each addition, until mixture is thick and creamy.
  • Pour into baked pie crust.
  • Garnish with shavings from the 1/2 ounce chocolate square.
  • Or melt chocolate and drizzle over the pie.
  • Chill at least 1-2 hours or until well set.
  • Because this is very rich, cut into at least 12 slices.
  • This pie freezes well for up to 3 months.
  • Just thaw several hours in the refrigerator and serve.
  • For real decadence, spread a layer of non-dairy topping over filling before garnishing with chocolate.
  • NOTE: Easy Way to Melt Chocolate: Place chocolate in a small bowl; place bowl on drip coffee maker burner until melted.
  • It is just the right temperature to melt chocolate without scorching it, unless left on burner much too long.
  • Note: Because of the raw eggs. this pie is not recommended for very young children, very elderly people, or people with impaired immune systems.
