This recipe was given to my grandmother back in the early 1960's and has been a family favorite for 40+ years!

  • 12 cup butter, melted
  • 12 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Melt the chocolate squares in a double boiler.
  2. In separate bowl, combine the sugar and flour.
  3. Add the three slightly beaten eggs and flour mixture to the chocolate, stirring well.

DELICIOUS! What a wonderful fudge pie. Exactly what I was looking for, and so easy to make. I don't have a double boiler, so I just melted everything in a small sauce pan over low heat. I also substituted semi sweet chocolate chips for baking squares because that's what I had on hand. It all worked perfectly. I'm not a huge pecan fan, but I included them anyway, and they were sooo good in there! It would be great without them as well. I cooked it for about an hour at 275 as recommended, but it wasn't cooking, so I cranked it up to 350 and that did the trick. Yummy, yummy!
