Hot Fudge Pie
Hot Fudge Pie is a chocolate dream! And with how easy it is to make, expect this recipe to become a frequent addition to your baking rotation.
This Hot Fudge Pie recipe is for all of the baking procrastinators out there. I count myself in that group, too, so I’m well-versed in last-minute desserts. It’s almost Christmas, you know. If you don’t have dessert planned, I’m here to help.
If you bake with any regularity, you probably have everything you need to make this pie. It’s all made with basic baking ingredients and plenty of chocolate. Make a homemade crust or use store-bought. Just be sure to use the best chocolate and cocoa powder you have in your pantry for the best flavor result.
This tall, dark, and delicious pie is all about the chocolate. You’ll use both bittersweet chocolate and cocoa powder to give it a double dose of chocolate goodness. The top is a little crackly like a good pan of brownies. The filling is rich and dense and fudgy and moist and really just lovely.
I upped the ante a bit by adding some coffee liqueur to the pie filling to enhance all that chocolate. You can use a different liqueur or omit it altogether.
I debated a topping for this pie. Ice cream? Whipped cream? Those are both really great ideas. But ultimately, I decided I would just enjoy the combination of deep, dark chocolate filling and pie crust. That’s more than enough to make me happy any time of year.
Merry Christmas to all of you! I hope you have a wonderful holiday full of sweet things.
