My husband has begged me for four years to make him fudge pie. Something his grandmother used to make but he was no help in describing and or finding a recipe. I tried this recipe for Valentines day for him as a surprise. He thought he was in heaven. Now I had never seen Fudge Pie before and was really surprised to find out that the center is supposed to be gooey. I baked mine 30 minutes and was starting to panic when it was still so runny but he assured me this is what it is supposed to look like. I didn't care for it thinking it tasted a little like an undercooked brownie but he and my daughter thought it was great. Maybe mine wasn't very good because by the time I got to eat it my piece was cold. I used the chips and had the whole thing in the oven in just minutes. I will make this again of course because my husband loves it so much. Read More

This pie is super yummy. I agree with the others that you should NOT omit the chocolate chips. The recipe doesn't clarify but pour the batter into an unbaked pastry shell. You will need a pie guard (or foil) for the last 20 minutes so the crust doesn't get too brown. Read More

This was very good! I did think that it screamed out for some salt though....otherwise I found the sweetness to be overwhelming. Thanks! Read More

I thought this was wonderful...especially the next day. It simply melts in your mouth. I substituted the "buttery crunch crust"--found on this website--for a plain pie crust. Don't bake the crust first though. Excellent recipe. Read More

This is amazingly rich it tastes like a gooey brownie in a pastry. If you're not a fan of chocolate steer clear of this. Read More

Oh wow! This was delicious! I am a chocoholic and this was just perfect...very rich, but that's never bothered me a bit :) My only complaint was that 30 minutes wasn't nearly long enough to cook it. Perhaps my oven's slow. Allow a little extra time to cook unless you want to eat it with a spoon (either way, it's delicious!) Read More

My chocoholic friends thought they died and went to heaven! I used the chocolate chips and after baking patted sweetened coconut on the top with a dusting of cocoa. This recipe is particularly good for lactose intolerant people since there is no dairy in the recipe. No one felt left out. The prep time to table is fantastic. Quick and easy! Read More

I loved it! Husband said it was 'yucky.' I'm not really a pie fan he is. It's too rich for him. I should have served it with ice cream. It's like a brownie in a crust but a gooey half-baked delicious brownie. I'll be making this pie for all those non-pie-lovers on Thanksgiving. Read More
