Chocolate Fudge Pie

Chocolate Fudge Pie
Chocolate. If you follow my blog, you know how much I LOVE chocolate.  So whether it is Christmas Eve, like today, or May, when I actually made this, a chocolate pie is always a crowd pleaser.  This is a twist on a fudge pie recipe that I saw on television once, but using organic ingredients, dark chocolate (antioxidants!!) and my favorite Coconut Oil Pie Crust (using whole wheat pastry flour).  So of course not a healthy food that you can eat everyday, but this is the Holidays, so I thought it was a perfect time to share one of my all time favorite ways to eat chocolate.

Chocolate Fudge Pie
some ingredients

1/2 recipe of my coconut oil pie crust
12 ounces unsweetened organic chocolate
2 C. organic white sugar
1 C. organic butter
2 T. instant espresso
1 tsp. organic chocolate extract
6 organic eggs
2 T. dark cocoa powder

In a medium saucepan, melt the chocolate, sugar and butter together over low heat. Stir frequently until the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Stir in the instant espresso and the chocolate extract. In a large bowl, beat the eggs together for about 1 minute. Beat in the cocoa until incorporated (might look a bit lumpy), then slowly add the chocolate mixture until well blended. Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake at 375F for 25-30 minutes, until just set.
