I miss Easter dinner at my parent’s house. Now that we live in Nova Scotia, I rarely get back to Ontario to visit my family. I miss my family and spending time together over the holidays. My mom always made the best Easter dinners. We’d have either turkey or ham with all the fixings, and for dessert, she would make her famous Butterscotch Meringue Pie. Oh, do I miss that pie!

Chewy Chocolate Fudge Pie

I wish my mom were here this past week to try the delicious Chewy Chocolate Fudge Pie. I think her Butterscotch Meringue now has some stiff competition! It’s sweet and chewy just like a brownie. Topped with a little whipped cream, it makes the perfect Easter dessert. It’s also effortless to make! Bridget was my helper in the kitchen and got involved in adding ingredients and stirring.

I used a pre-made pie crust and whipped up the homemade filling for an easy pie that is great for serving guests or a treat for yourself. You might also like my Pecan Butter Tarts or my Fudge Pie

What is a Chocolate Fudge Pie 

Chewy Chocolate Fudge Pie is unique, and a lot different than other pies I have enjoyed over the years. Like I mentioned earlier, the chocolate fudge pie offers more of a brownie filling. It bakes up to a light and tender brownie-like texture inside a pie shell.

Can I Use Homemade Crust for the Chocolate Fudge Pie 

Absolutely! If you prefer homemade crust and have a favorite recipe, you can easily swap a store bought crust for a homemade pie crust. I just like cutting the corner and reaching for a store-bought crust to speed up the process. Plus, making homemade pie crust is an art I feel, so having one be light and flaky takes time to master.

Can I Swap the Walnuts in the Fudge Pie Recipe 

You can swap the walnuts with another nut or leave the nuts out altogether. I love the bit of crunch and nutty flavor, but if you are not a fan of nuts or have an allergy, just leave it out. As for the alternatives, you can add in pecans, slivered almonds or even chopped cashews. 

Add-Ins to the Fudge Pie Batter 

  • Chop up candy bars and toss in 
  • Add in chocolate covered mint pieces 
  • Toss in some crushed toffee
  • Add a sprinkle of white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips

How To Prevent Pie Crust from Over-Cooking in Oven 

Do you hate when the outside of your pie shell overcooks why you are waiting for your pie to cook? You can either buy a pie shell protector or take small strips of aluminum foil and place them around the crust and try to crimp them a bit. Don’t get the foil in the batter. Then bake regularly, and then about 10-15 minutes till it is done, remove foil and let it cook up the crust. 

This method works for any pie. I do this often; it is such a handy trick. 

How to Make Brownie Pie 

You want to start by melting your butter and chocolate chips in a saucepan and heat until the chips are fully melted. Then turn off the heat and remove, and allow it to cool for five minutes. 

Once the chocolate has cooled, whisk in your sugar and vanilla. Then one at a time, add in your eggs until it is fully incorporated. Next, add in your flour and salt, and then once mixed add in chocolate chips and walnuts. 

Pour batter into your pie crust, and smooth the top. Bake on the lowerest rack for around 35 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick into the pie and it comes out clean. 

Top with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream and dive in.  

How to Store Brownie Pie 

I like to keep this pie in the fridge and then just slice and eat chilled or warm up quickly in the microwave when we want a slice. It is a delicious pie. 

Can You Freeze Brownie Pie

I have not tried freezing this pie, but I would think it would freeze just fine. Just allow the pie to fully cool on the counter, then wrap in saran wrap followed by aluminum foil. Then freeze for anywhere up to three months. Thaw on the counter or fridge before serving.
