In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt; whisk in milk while cooking over medium heat until mixture thickens. In a bowl, beat eggs and then stir about 1 cup of your hot cocoa mixture into it. Pour this back into your saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes while stirring. Remove from heat, mix in vanilla, and pour filling into your baked pie crust.
