Tasty Tuesday: Kryptonite for Women

Since it's Valentine's Day, I thought that I would share a little bit of insight into the female gender for all of the men out there. While each woman has certain things unique to her that make her happy, most women enjoy the following two things: men cooking in the kitchen and chocolate. When you combine both of these, you have the female version of kryptonite. We lose all ability to function and fall into a swoon. Men cooking chocolate for us?!?! Save me now!

I wanted to share with you with you the easiest, most decadent chocolate dessert I've ever had. Print this one out and let the guys have at it. It's foolproof!

Here is what you need to make Fudge Pie:

1 stick butter
2 (1 oz) squares of unsweetened baking chocolate
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. self-rising flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1(9-inch) frozen pie shell, unbaked

First, combine the butter and chocolate in a medium saucepan set over low heat. Melt, stirring frequently until blended.

Remove the pan from heat. Cool slightly. (Sorry about the picture. Yuck!)

Add the eggs to the chocolate and mix well. This is why you want to make sure and let your pan of chocolate cool a bit. No one wants scrambled eggs in their pie!

Add the sugar and mix well.

Add the flour and mix well.

Add the vanilla and mix well. Sorry about the picture. Magpie was being my assistant and her hand got right in front of this one.

Finally add the pecans and mix well.

Spoon into unbaked pie shell.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Be prepared to catch your woman as she falls into a faint at her first bite!

This is the pie in its natural state, but if you need some extra bonus points with your wife or extra calories in your diet, there are two other options for serving Fudge Pie.

Option #1: If you are serving the pie warm, then scoop out some vanilla ice cream and turn it into Fudge Pie a la Mode. It's super yummy!
Option #2: If you are taking the pie somewhere or serving it later and it has time to cool off, then you can put whipped cream on top and sprinkle it with some chopped pecans. Delicious as well!

Or you can always...
