Super Easy Chocolate Fudge Pie Recipe
I call it Mouth Watering and Super Easy Fudge Pie Recipe because most of the hard work happens in the microwave. Then you just plop your pie, I used a pre-made crust, in the oven to finish it off.

MAKE TWO chocolate fudge pies, since a typical can of milk is enough for two pies.
First things first. I used our 4 cup liquid measuring cup to make the filling since it was microwave safe. Simply melt the chips, milk, and sugar in the microwave.
Then I just added the next ingredients, and if you know how to whisk you can make this pie.
Since my youngest does not love nuts in his desserts, I chopped about half the amount and only added it to half the pie after I poured it in. A gentle stir to get it into the batter and it was a success.
This is the best chocolate fudge pie on the universe. Just bake it and wait for yumminess to fill the kitchen.
If you have your own pie plate you can place it inside before you add the filling.
Just slice and serve, with or without ice cream it is the easiest pie to put together.

I made this a few hours before dinner, and although it says to cool 10 minutes before eating, it was still slightly warm and very decadent.
We also loved it the next day at room temperature. I think I liked it a little cooler when the ice cream did not just meltdown over the pie completely.
Do not be afraid of the oven this summer, try this super easy fudge pie recipe and watch it disappear before your very eyes.
