It is no secret that I LOVE chocolate – and I love pie – can you imagine combining them into one delicious dessert!? A friend of mine sent me a recipe from Iris Delozier Black’s Facebook page for “Hot Fudge Pie” and it sounded amazing…so amazing, I made it that evening. I did update the recipe to my liking by adding a little instant coffee granules and some chocolate chips.
The final result is so gooey and so chocolaty – you will not believe it! It is like one giant, big, under cooked brownie. Now really – how bad could that be?
Hot Chocolate Fudge Pie
1 stick of unsalted butter, softened (4 oz.)
1 cup of white granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (mixed with about a teaspoon of all purpose flour to avoid the chips from sinking to the bottom of the pie)
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly spray a pie dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Cream together the softened butter and white granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs (one at a time) and beat well. Next, add the vanilla extract and continue to mix thoroughly.
Next, add the cocoa powder, instant coffee granules and salt and stir well.
Gently fold in the flour and flour-coated chocolate chips.
Pour finished mixture into prepared pie pan and bake exactly 34 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.
