Step 1

Mix cocoa, cornstarch, beaten egg yolks; sugar and salt, then add milk gradually, while stirring in a pot over med-high heat.

Cook until thick, beating it smooth. While stirring, mix in the vanilla. Cream pies take some time to thicken, so stir... and stir (10 to 15 minutes).

Using a heavy bottom pan really helps. Just keep it up until it thickens. Pour into a pre-baked pie shell.

Put in the fridge to chill for several hours before serving.

Add whipped cream, cool whip, or a baked meringue for the topping if you like :)
