Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I’m working on my dishes to take to my mom’s today. I’m taking Pecan Pie Bars & another dessert I’ll be sharing with you soon if it turns out. Have you gotten everything ready for your thansksgiving dinner yet? This fudge pie would be a great addition to your holiday meal as a chocolate option. This is yet another recipe that my mom has been making since my childhood. It is fudgy, chocolatey, and super easy to throw together for a last minute dessert. This is best served warm with ice cream over top. Sorry there’s no ice cream in the pictures, I took the pictures a few days after and had no ice cream left over. This basically tastes like a brownie but in pie form!
1 stick plus 2 tbsp. butter, melted
5 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9 inch pie pan, set aside.
Melt butter either in the microwave in 30 second intervals or on the stove over low heat.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, add melted butter. Add in the cocoa powder & sugar. Mix well then add in flour & salt and mix until combined. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in vanilla and mix until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan, distributing evenly.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool 1-2 minutes then serve warm topped with ice cream.
