Easy Fudge Pie

This recipe was given to me about 30 years ago by my friend, Dawn. It originally came from Ireland's Restaurant, which was one of my favorites as a teenager. I had ordered it for dessert there many times, and I was thrilled to get the recipe. This pie is not only delicious, it is also made from ingredients that you basically always have on hand. I added semi-sweet morsels and pecans to the original recipe, but it is still fabulous without them. It is great to throw together for last-minute company.

Vickie,

A little late on this post but was following a thread on Recipe-Zaar about Ireland's restaurant's Steak and Biscuits..

Does your friend Dawn have any OTHER Ireland's recipes? Like SandB or the bleu cheese dressing?

Thanks!

Hi Penny,
That was the only one she had. Sorry!

I've really got chocolate on the brain since it's Valentine's month. Something else headed me in this direction. We had something on a Carnival cruise in January called MELTING CHOCOLATE CAKE. Others have been looking for this recipe as well and an email to Carnival resulted in a recipe that is large enough to feed a big ship-load of people. But I have now found a recipe that is pretty close in smaller portions. I also have a FUDGE PIE recipe that is just about what Ireland's was like and very similar to the one you posted. Our experience came for an Ireland's in Memphis in the 70's.
