I thought I would do a gooey dessert in honor of Halloween. I live out where no one every Trick or Treats but this year, we had a couple of visitors. They were probably one of my neighbor’s grandchildren but the point is, I didn’t think I had any candy. But, I dug up a couple of bags of M & M’s so…..whew! No Tricks!
But we decided to get in the “sweet tooth” mood ourselves and I made some ghoulishly delicious Fudge Pie…..better known as gooey, fudgy brownies. My friend Mrs. Hart gave me this recipe and it is thankfully easy as fudge pie and it makes it’s own crust. I also wrote a Halloween post, which you can read at http://permanentposies.com/2010/11/ghosts-of-halloween-past/, which could really be a Thanksgiving post…..
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
Nuts…..go for how many you like
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place chocolate and butter in a microwave bowl and heat on high for 1 minute. Stir and let it sit for about a minute and heat another 30 seconds more. Let this sit until the chocolate melts completely. Add sugar, flour, eggs, vanilla and salt. Stir until well combined.
Pour into lightly oiled 9 inch pie pan. Dot the top with pecan halves. Or if you would prefer to chop them and put them inside, that would be good too. The original recipe had no pecans…..so….whatever. I live in a Pecan Orchard…..so everything has pecans.
Bake for 25 minutes. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream….preferably…..Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla or Vanilla Bean. Yum!
Just to let you know, I am doing another Giveaway…my second. I am giving away a print on heavy paper of one of my original oil paintings. Since the painting is of food, I thought it might be appropriate to promote it in a recipe post. I guess I should have done a recipe with peppers….hmmm. Maybe later. Check out my post for the entry details. http://permanentposies.com/2010/10/giveaway-print-of-one-of-my-original-oil-paintings/
I am linking up today with several blog parties, one of which is my host, of course.
