1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups water boiling

2 tablespoons butter (not margarine)

1 frozen pie crust, baked


In a medium saucepan mix sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Stir in boiling water. Stirring over medium heat, bring to a boil and boil for 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened. Gradually stir about one-third of the hot mixture into the egg yolks, then stir back into hot mixture in saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat 2 minutes longer. Stir in butter and vanilla. Preheat oven to 350°F. Pour filling into pie shell. Spread meringue over hot filling, sealing to edge of pastry. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely, then chill.
