I have never had any luck making pies until 3:00 this AM! This is a fudge pie. I just took the pictures a little while ago & had the first piece. OMG!! It's amazing! I'll post the recipe in just a few minutes. Thanks for listening to me brag on myself for a few minutes!
My MIL has an old family recipe that's very similar to this, and it's delish! It's confusing, because this pie is kinda like a 'brownie' pie; her recipe came from her side of the family; but - FIL's side of the family also has a 'chocolate pie' which is more like a pudding pie! LOL, it only took me about 10 years to figure that out when they would all be talking about one or the other!
