Graham Cracker Pie Shell
1. In a 2-quart sauce pan, whisk: Sugar, Cornstarch, Cocoa Powder, Salt, and half-n-half until smooth. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often.
2. Pour 1/2 -1 cup of chocolate mixture into a small cup or bowl, add the egg yolks and mix. Add a bit more chocolate mixture, then return the chocolate/egg mixture to the saucepan.
3. Boil over medium heat for 1 minute stirring constantly. Remove from heat and butter, stirring until melted. Pour custard into the pie shell and allow to cool at least 15 minutes, or chill it in the refrigerator over night.
