How to Make an Amazing Fudge Pie

Posted by on May 19, 2013 in dessert | 18 comments

I have never read the book,

How to Win Friends and Influence People.

I know that Mr. Carnegie offers some great advice.

But, I feel confident that somewhere between;



“Offer genuine appreciation.”

Should have been;

“Bake Aunt Lois’s fudge pie.”

Because if you are wanting to win friends,

influence people,

(or bribe your children.)

You need to have this recipe.

Southern Fudge Pie Recipe @ DaisyMaeBelle

My mother-in-law shared this recipe with me when I married her wonderful son almost 18 years ago.

Fudge Pie Recipe @ DaisyMaeBelle


2 squares unsweetened chocolate

1 stick butter

1 cup sugar

2 whole eggs, slightly beaten

pinch of salt

1/4 cup flour

1 tsp vanilla

How to Make a Fudge Pie @ DaisyMaeBelle

One of the secrets to a great fudge pie is a whisk.

Pie Crust @ DaisyMaeBelle

The other secret is Kroger’s refrigerated pie crust.

Pillsbury has the generics beat just about everywhere else,

but if you want people to think that your crust is homemade,

(and what good Southern girl wouldn’t make her own pie crust?)

you are going to want to go with the Kroger brand.

How to Make a Fudge Pie @ DaisyMaeBelle

Melt butter and chocolate together on the stovetop.

Stirring with the whisk.

Turn heat off, and add sugar.

Stir with the whisk.

Add beaten eggs, vanilla, salt and flour.

Stir with whisk.

Let the mixture “rest” for about 5 minutes.

Stir with the whisk again.

Pour in pie crust.

Bake at 325 for 30 minutes.

You are now prepared to win friend,

influence people,

and bribe your children.


Life to the full!

  1. Mmmm, that looks so good. 🙂 I make one that is really similar but it uses Hershey’s Cocoa. It’s so easy and comes out perfect every time.

  2. Good idea because who doesn’t like chocolate pie! This is very similar in ingredients to the cold, no bake chocolate pie I make with graham cracker crust. I will have to try this though. It looks so good. By the way, my 20 year old daughter is on a reading kick (yea!) and just read How to Win Friends and Influence People. I’ll tell her about your addendum to the book. She will take your advice most likely as she loves chocolate pie and she loves to bake. She said that basically it said the best way to win friends and influence people is to manipulate them into getting what you want. Chocolate pie is a good manipulator. Sounds like it fits into the premise of the book. You had it right without reading it. Nice work.

  3. I can testify about the fudge pie!! Worth every calorie!
    Also I love that little pitcher in your photo!! 🙂

  4. Yummmmm!

  5. I know what is going to Wed. night supper at my church. Thank you.

  6. We’ll be going grocery shopping on Wed. (payday yeah) so I’ll sure have to get the ingredients to make this pie and some other recipes I found for spa treatments.
    Your pie looks so good, I’m drooling. Sure glad your MIL was so sweet and generous about giving you the recipe. Is this one of your hubs favorites?
    We’ve been watching the Walton’s all day on Hallmark so I’m all mellow and misty eyed. Just love that show. Even saw some episodes had never seen before. Does your family like to watch the Waltons ever? I guess I can relate to alot of what happens since I was born in 1940. My hubs gets a little tired of it so I go in another room so he can watch on l/r tv. I figure I’m in here anyway, might as well watch what I want while I can. He watches things I’m not crazy about at all. He’s a Steven Segall fan. I can only take watching his show for so long. Too much killing.
    Happy Week

  7. It was so nice to meet you today! Love your things! I make a pie similar. Everything is better with chocolate.

  8. Oh this sounds so yummy. I need to give this one a try. Hugs, Marty

  9. Thank you for this recipe – sounds so yum and I can’t wait to try it. I am in Australia and would really appreciate you explaining what 2 squares of chocolate would weigh please, as our chocolate comes in really small squares of approx. 1/2 inch and I know that wouldn’t be anywhere near enough! Thanks in advance. Warm regards.

  10. Me again – sorry, I would also appreciate the weight of a stick of butter please. Thanks again.

    • Tania,,
      One square of chocolate is equal to one ounce (so you need two ounces for this recipe) and one stick of butter is 4 oz (1/4 cup). I hope you see this even though it’s been more than a year! Looks like a great recipe!

      • Sorry, that should say 1/4 pound for the butter, not cup, whoops!

  11. This sounds heavenly!

  12. Wow this looks amazing and doesn’t seem all that hard!
    We would love it if you would link up at our linky party:
    Two Girls and a Party
    Live every Wednesday to Sunday. Hosted by:
    Dana @ This Silly Girl’s Life
    Parrish @ Life with the Crust Cut Off
    We hope to see you there!

  13. Mmmm, yum!

  14. Totally love the handwritten recipe. So special. Oh, and the pie looks pretty good too!!!

  15. Tania, one square of chocolate is equal to one ounce (so you need two ounces for this recipe) and a stick of butter is roughly 4 oz (1/4 pound). I’m making this tonight, looks good!!

  16. I will definitely try this! Sounds so easy!
