Place chocolate squares and margarine in a 2-quart (2 liters)bowl. Cover and microwave until margarine is melted.
Stir until chocolate melts and mixes with the margarine. Add sugar and beat in the eggs.
Add flour and mix well. Pour into a well greased or sprayed 9-inch (23 x 3cm) pie pan or into prepared crust.
Bake at 250°F (121C or gas mark 1/2) for 30 minutes or until set.
Pie will still be liquid when done. Let it cool completely before eating. Store in refrigerator (if it lasts that long).
Serve it cold or warm a wedge in the microwave. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for those that can't handle (appreciate) so much dark chocolate.
No crust is necessary, but this pie tastes great in any type. It's especially good in a graham cracker or shortbread crust.

Simply pop off the plastic cover and fill. Wash and save the cover for your finished pie. Doesn't get any easier than that!
