FOR CHOCOLATE PIE FILLING:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all dry ingredients (cocoa, flour, and sugar) together in a boiler. Stir to blend well.

    Thank you for catching that for me. I always try to be so careful not to do that, it is so easy for me when I just post one item at a time rather than just using cut and paste. I am so computer spoiled. I have made the correction. Thanks again for finding the error! Blessings!!!
