This Easy Fudge Pie is a perfect way to end a nice meal.

Easy Fudge pie made with sweetened condensed milk: a simple, but amazing way to end a nice meal.

I am all about easy desserts.  When I am bustling around the kitchen making dinner, dessert is often an after-thought.  I often get out my ingredients for dinner and while I am chopping vegetables I realize that I haven’t planned a sweet for the family.  That is the time that I go into panic mode and start opening cupboards to see what I can come up with in 20 minutes of less without dirtying a sink load of dishes.  Pies like this Easy Fudge Pie have saved my husband and children from moping around all evening bemoaning the lack of dessert.Easy Fudge pie made with sweetened condensed milk: a simple, but amazing way to end a nice meal.Seeings Valentine’s Day is just around the corner,  I thought I would share a few chocolate items over the next week or so.  I know that IF I were to make a fancy dinner for that holiday, I might want an easy, but delicious dessert to follow.  This pie certainly fits the bill.  It was a total hit with the family and its ease made me a big fan.  Honestly, can you go wrong with sweetened condensed milk?  ‘Nough said.

  1. Kristen,
    I’m not sure what I love about this post–the fact that I, too, totally forget about dessert until I’m out of the mood to create anything (and thank goodness for the box of CandyCane Joe Joes in the pantry) or the fact that, subbing an Oreo cookie crust for the graham cracker one, I’ve got all that I need to make it in my pantry.
    Score! Thanks for a tasty-looking and easy dessert idea!

  2. Hi, i would like to use a pie shell which needs baking. should i bake it prior to putting it in the oven with the filling or place it in oven unbaked? Thanks

    1. Daita, you should not pre-bake the pie crust if you are using a regular crust. The pie bakes 45 minutes, which would give the crust plenty of time to bake with the filling.

  3. I made this tonight. Just tried it actually. It looks terrific but I would not describe it as fudgy in taste. I barely found it tasted chocolate and there was an aftertaste. I think it might be the milk. I’ve never used it in a recipe before. Followed instructions exactly. Others liked it more than I did but no wows.
