This recipe is a game changer my friends.
A. Game. Changer.
This Hot Fudge Cookie Pie is a soft, gooey, buttery, deep dish chocolate chip cookie filled with hot fudge sauce and baked as a pie. Top with a scoop of the No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream and you have yourself the perfect dessert.
You know we love cookie pies here on LCB. We had Cookie Pie Week featuring three cookie pies (here, here and here). I’ve also made an ooey gooey S’mores Cookie Pie. The idea for a hot fudge cookie pie has been going around in my head for a while and I finally gave it a go.
I’ll say it again.
The first attempt turned out too runny and gooey. The fudge sauce refused to set so I resolved to make a thicker fudge sauce. When the cookie pie was hot, there is a lava of hot fudge chocolate sauce (as you see above) but when the cookie pie cooled, the hot fudge will thicken so the pie could be sliced into nice, neat pieces. You know… If you’re into that…
I prefer to dive in head first a spoon.
I used the same cookie pie base recipe I have used for my previous chocolate chip cookie pies for the simple fact that it is just scrumptious. The cookie bakes perfectly with a chewy outside shell and a soft, thick, buttery center. Never mess with a good thing I say.
- 200 g Butter, Partially Melted (1 Cup)
- 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tbsp. Golden Syrup
- 2 Large Eggs
- 2 and 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Cup Chocolate Chips
- 2 Tbsp. Golden Syrup
- 150 g Dark Chocolate
- 50 g Butter
- 1/4 Cup Milk
- To make the hot fudge chocolate sauce.
- Place the golden syrup, dark chocolate, butter and milk in a saucepan over a low heat and melt together.
- Set aside while you make the cookie pie.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a 9" or 20cm round pie dish.
- Beat the super soft or partially melted butter, brown sugar and sugar together.
- Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Add the vanilla extract and golden syrup and beat in.
- Mix in the flour and baking powder.
- Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Spread half the cookie dough in an even layer as the the base in the prepared dish.
- Pour over the hot fudge chocolate sauce.
- Top with the remaining cookie dough.
- Place in the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes. The middle will still wobble but the outside will be starting to turn golden.
- Allow it to cool completely before slicing otherwise the hot fudge will run everywhere.
- Or dig in while its hot with a spoon!
