Hot Fudge Pie… need I say more? Serve it with ice cream, whipped cream and maybe a chocolate or cherry sauce and you will be in chocolate heaven.
I have no idea of the origin of this recipe. When we entered the recipe into our family recipe database 25 years ago, we had no idea and put ‘Unknown’. So my guess is that my mom got it from a friend and didn’t know which one.
This pie is generally served hot out of the oven and is so moist and chocolaty that you will get your chocolate fix with one bite.
My sis was having fun with her tartlet pan and turned them into little tartlets, some with walnuts and others just dusted with powdered sugar. They work great as little bites or served in your cookie tin for Christmas. We served ours with ice cream, whipped cream and a cherry sauce.
You can make the pie ahead, refrigerate it and bake it when you start dinner. That way when dinner is done, the pie is ready to serve.
Oh my, I just gained 5 more pounds remembering eating this on Christmas eve… Enjoy!
