  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350. Prepare pastry for a single-crust pie in a 9-inch pie dish.
  • For filling, in a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, flour and vanilla. Stir in melted chocolate and the chocolate pieces (and pepper mint extract if substituting.) Pour filling into the pastry-lined pie plate.
