And with my sister and niece coming – I considered it the perfect opportunity to try yet another chocolate pie recipe.
This time I choose a hot fudge sundae pie – a dense rich chocolate pie topped with ice cream and other toppings.
The crowd loved it – declaring it “most definitely a keeper”.
Hot Fudge Sundae Pie
2/3 cup butter
1/3 cup Hershey’s coca
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust
ice cream – any flavor
ice cream toppings – bananas, maraschino cherries, peanuts, whipped cream, etc…
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add cocoa, stir till smooth. Remove from heat.
Stir together the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add the egg mixture to the cocoa mixture and stir with a whisk until smooth and slightly thickened.
Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, and salt; stir with a whisk until smooth.
Pour mixture into the unbaked crust.
Bake 30-35 minutes until the edge is set (the center will be soft). Cool about 2 hours.
To serve, cut a slice and top it with ice cream and other toppings.
