Double Chocolate Fudge Pie Recipe

Double Chocolate Fudge Pie Recipe
If you’re looking for a great dessert for chocoholics, Double Chocolate Fudge Pie is perfect. It’s best when baked with a homemade crust, but cooks who prefer not to make their own can substitute the ready pie crusts available at most grocery stores. This pie is rich and decadent, and nobody will guess how easy the filling is to prepare. Made of common ingredients that most have already on the pantry shelf or in the fridge, this pie needs only a bit of whipped cream or ice cream to make dessert lovers happy.
One of the good things about this pie is that the filling is fairly firm, so the pie will keep several days at room temperature, and the crust never goes soggy. Since the pie is quite rich, large pieces are not necessary, and one 9 pie will serve 10 – 12 lucky diners.

10 Servings

1/2 cup melted butter, (1 stick)
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa, preferably Dutch since it’s much darker and richer and has no additives
1 pinch sea salt
1/4 cup flour
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup dark chocolate, coarsely chopped, or highest quality semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 9" unbaked pie shell

Sweetened whipped cream
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Place the melted butter in a bowl; whisk in the sugar and cocoa.
  3. Add the salt, flour, eggs, and vanilla; whisk until smooth. (No mixer needed; this goes together quickly and easily.)
  4. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  5. Spread the mixture evenly in the unbaked pie shell.
  6. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until the center is just set.
  7. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and let cool thoroughly before cutting into wedges. Serve with real sweetened whipped cream (no frozen whipped topping here – this is an elegant pie).
