I love gooey, chocolate, fudgy desserts, even more if they are dripping in rich hot fudge.
This dessert is something that I have made for years, it came in the mail on a flyer from Southern Living Magazine. Sadly I cannot find the name, so I made up my own, if you know the correct name please share it with me.
This dessert is easy and one that I think would be perfect for the upcoming holidays as an alternative to the traditional spice of the season. Don't get me wrong during the holidays I try to eat my share of pumpkin pie but I know there are others who do not feel the same love I do for pumpkins.
Fudge Brown Tart
11/4 cups of chocolate wafer crumbs
1/3 cup of butter, melted
1/2 cup of butter, softened
3/4 cup of brown sugar packed
3 large eggs
2 cups of chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons of instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Garnishes: ice cream, hot fudge
Combine the crumbs and the melted butter and press into a 9 inch pie pan. Bake at 350 for 6 to 8 minutes.
Beat the softened butter at medium speed until fluffy, then add brown sugar and beat well. Add eggs, one at a time and mix well. Stir in melted chocolate, flour, coffee and vanilla. Pour filling into prepared crust.
Bake at 375 for 25 minutes, cool completely on wire rack. Garnish with ice cream and fudge if you feel like it. Otherwise enjoy it plain.
NOTES: The original recipes calls for 1 cup of chopped pecans in the batter. I did not use them. Also, DO NOT OVER BAKE! This pie is supposed to be gooey inside.
I hope you try this scrumptious chocolate tart, if you do come back and let me know what you think!
