Then make the filling and add it to the pie crust.  There are three steps to the filling.  First you melt the chocolate and butter together in a pan.  You slowly at the evaporated milk to this one it is warmed.  Then you add this to the egg yolks, vanilla extract, and almost extract.  Once this is thoroughly mixed you add all of this to the sugar mixture and that makes your filling.  I thought it would be a little thicker than it was but it baked up well and was so yummy!

 Bake for 45-50 minutes.  My pie did not puff up like the recipe stated but it tasted amazing!

 Once it has cooled for around 4 hours it is ready to serve!  This is a delicious and very rich pie!  Perfect for parties and get togethers!  It is definitely a crowd pleaser!
