Mississippi Mud Pie

This is such a wonderful pie! Enjoy!
Use a chocolate or vanilla cookie crust, or a graham cracker crust, to make this Mississippi mud pie.
1/4 lb. butter, 1 stick
2 (1 oz. each) squares unsweetened chocolate
3 eggs
3 tablespoons white corn syrup
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
9 inch graham cracker, chocolate or vanilla wafer pie shell
In a saucepan, heat butter and chocolate, stirring often, until melted and well blended. Beat eggs; stir in the corn syrup, sugar and vanilla. Add the chocolate mixture to egg and sugar mixture, stirring well. Preheat oven to 350°. Pour filling into prepared pie shell. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until top is slightly crunchy and filling is set. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or dollop of whipped cream.
