Recipe Thursday (on Wednesday): Chocolate Chess Pie

I'm posting this a day early because I have a different post for tomorrow. :)
Okay, this is a huge crowd pleaser for the chocolate lover.  And best of all it's super dooper easy and consists of stuff you probably already have on hand.  I served it the other night at the dinner club party beside a Carvel ice cream cake.  And guess what?  All of my pie was eaten and the ice cream cake wasn't.  That says a lot!  So, here ya go:
1.5 cups of sugar
3.5 Tbsp of cocoa
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 stick of margarine or butter
1 small can Carnation milk (I never have this so I just use half of a cup of regular milk)
1 tsp vanilla
1 unbaked pie shell
Now just dump it all in a bowl and mix it up really well so there aren't any lumps.  For those of you who like to hand mix with a spoon, I would not recommend this.  It really needs to be mixed by an electric hand mixer or stand mixer to get all of the lumps out.
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.  DO NOT OVERBAKE!!!  And voila!  You have a really fantastic dessert!
