If you love chocolate this is your pie! Decadently delicious and you won’t be able to stop at one slice. I must warn you, this thing is large, as it is made in a 9 inch pie plate. You can also make mini pies and all you have to do is adjust the baking time.

- Whisk sugar, cocoa, flour, espresso granules & salt together. Pour butter and evaporated milk into sugar & cocoa mixture and beat on high speed. Add vanilla and eggs. With mixer speed on high, mix for approximately 2-3 minutes, until light & kind of frothy.
- Pour mixture into 9 inch unbaked pie shell and bake for about 50 minutes. Check pie and determine is 15-20 more minutes is needed. The center of the pie should jiggle a bit – kind of light a firm jello. Cool on a wire rack for at least an hour before slicing. The pie will continue to set as it cools.
