How to make a delicious fudge pie

Updated on January 14, 2012

This fudge pie recipe was my mother's favorite. She made it every Thanksgiving and Christmas and even a few times throughout the year. Everyone begged her to make it because it's so rich and delicious!

She passed it on to me, but I'm not sure where she got it originally. The community cookbooks, such as church and chamber of commerce type cookbooks were some of her favorites, so it could have come from there.

I'm sure it's not a super-secret recipe because she never told me to hide it in my underwear drawer or to eat it if I was captured, so I think it's safe to share it here. Enjoy!

      Wow. My husband loves chocolate pie, he is going to have to wait until Valentines Day for this one though because I know how much he is going to love it! Maybe squirt a white heart of whipped cream in the middle? If this had been my mother-in-law's recipe I would have had dire warnings not to share! So thank you!

      Claudia Tello: Thank you for the comment! A 1/2 stick of butter is 4 tablespoons, but I'm not sure of the conversion from there.

      Sounds delicious. Nothing better than a recipe that has been handed down! Thanks for sharing.

      This sounds soooo good. I bet I could add some chopped pecans too.

      Mmm it looks delicious! How much exactly is ½ a stick of butter though? Where I live it could be 45g or 100g, depending on the size of the stick you buy at the grocery store. I don't know how big sticks of butter are in the US.
