Hot Fudge Pie is an old-fashioned dessert recipe that is easy to make and always a huge hit at parties!
I have been baking a lot this week in preparation for my husband’s work holiday party. I was tasked with desserts so there have been a ton of cookies and pies covering the kitchen counters. I wasn’t going to share this recipe today, I was saving it for next week. I actually wasn’t going to post any recipe today but I changed my mind after a certain counter-surfing Goldendoodle apparently wanted this pie for herself. I’m sitting here staring at what’s left of this beautiful Hot Fudge Pie smashed over my kitchen floor, so to console myself I’m going to share the recipe and the pictures I took of it before it was destroyed!
This was actually one of my great grandmother’s recipes, one that’s scribbled on a little piece of paper and taped in her recipe book. Its those kinds of recipes that are a true treasure to me. The original actually doesn’t use a crust, it simply instructs to grease a pie pan with butter and pour the fudge mixture directly in the pan. I like to buy a little premade chocolate crust when I make it, however, but you can choose either option. This recipe is SO easy to make, and believe me when I tell my kiddos hot fudge pie is on the way, they do a happy dance! It’s rich and delicious! It really is a must-try recipe!
I serve this pie dusted with powdered sugar, but if you’re going to serve warm (which is the point of hot fudge pie, right?) it’s absolutely amazing with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream as well!Print
