Chocolate Pie

I made this experimentally on Thursday night, for Open House--Another reason you should drop in!

Melt one tablespoon of butter over low heat on the stove. Then add 1 1/2 cups melting chocolate, of dark and milk chocolate varieties, stirring constantly. Once the chocolate has melted, mix in 1 can of sweetened condensed milk and then 2 egg yolks. Add one teaspoon of pepperment extract and stir until even.
In a seperate container, whip the whites from two eggs until fluffy and firm, mixing with 1/4 cup of icing sugar. Fold into the chocolate mixture.
If you wish, add cookie chunks, nuts, or skor bits.
Pour into two prepared pie shells. Leaving them uncovered, place them in a 350 degree oven for 15-25 minutes, or until filling appears cooked.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with icing sugar and chocolate graham wafer crumbs, or another desired garnish. Let cool slightly and then serve.
Mmmmm...this was a success.
