My Grandma's French Chocolate Pie

Every single time I visited my Grandma Randall this pie was waiting for me in her refrigerator. 
She called it "Your Special Pie"!
And it is indeed, a special pie, known to most people as a French Chocolate Pie. 
It is fairly easy to make and absolutely delicious!
I hope it becomes "Your special pie" as well!

  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 squares of unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large container of cool whip (3 cups)
  • 1 graham cracker crust
  • pecans, finely chopped

  • Melt the squares of unsweetened chocolate in a heat proof container in the microwave (microwave a few seconds at a time until melted). Set aside to cool.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together
  • Stir in the cooled chocolate
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating 5 minutes after each addition at high speed
  • Fold in thawed cool whip
  • Pour into graham cracker crust and sprinkle with finely chopped pecans over the top
  • Chill until firm about two hours
