Directions:
Mix sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt together in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the egg yolks and milk and then mix into the dry ingredients. Place in a microwave safe bowl and cook until thickened, stirring every 12 minutes with a whisk. This should take about 58 minutes depending on the power of your microwave. Remove from the microwave and whisk in 2 tbsp butter, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 c chopped pecans. Cool slightly and pour into a baked pie shell and cool for at least 2 hours. Top with whipped cream or just cover the pudding with plastic wrap to keep the top from drying out.
