Derby Pie Fudge



Okay, I'm a couple weeks late with this, but seriously - is there really not a good time for fudge?  Don't lie.  I know you guys like some chocolate.

Now, I don't know if Kern's Derby Pie is available to people outside of Kentucky, but I know that it's available year-round to us, and we are quite fortunate.  Because really, this is the quintessential pie to have during the horse-racing season!  Now, if you don't have this readily available to you, don't fret.  A quick Google search produces tons of Derby pie recipes that you could use.


But if you Google search "Derby Pie Fudge", on the other hand - you're pickin's are slim!  Google has never heard of such a thing.  I told a co-worker this, and she immediately told me I needed to patent this.  Hehe, good idea, but really, I totally want to share this amazing goodness with all of you!  Trust me. The guests at the Derby party we brought this to were overjoyed with happiness once they saw this.  It wasn't like they were saying "hey, that fudge stuff is good"... they were saying things like "Oh my God, I don't even like fudge and I love this!"  No joke.

Oh, and don't forget to vote in this week's poll.  I'm feeling like something sweet once again...





So what are you waiting for?  Make this fudge pronto! (And if you're in the Louisville area on June 25th, I'll be selling this at a Great American Bake Sale site!  - I'll get you the info if you want it!).


Ingredients:


2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups marshmallows
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 Derby Pie (I had to save a slice to eat, of course - but you could always use the whole pie), chopped

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and slowly add sugar.  Stir in evaporated milk and salt until sugar is dissolved.

Bring mixture to a boil and stir constantly for about 5 minutes, until mixture thickens.

Remove from heat and add marshmallows, milk chocolate, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Stir until chocolate and marshmallows are melted.

Stir in vanilla and chopped Derby Pie pieces.

Line a 1-inch tall pan (8x8) with parchment paper.  Pour in chocolate mixture and chill in the fridge until set, about 30 minutes.


Cut fudge into squares and try to stop yourself from eating the whole pan.  It's going to be really hard!

  1. That fudge sounds great! I'm originally from Louisville and I LOVE derby pie :) I created a derby cookies recipe a few weeks ago when it was derby time. Who doesn't love chocolate, caramel and pecans?

  2. Hi Peggy! I didn't know about Derby Pie. Oh this looks so yummy! Being a non-baker, I rather want to buy yours at the bake sale since there will be no mistake involved. ;-) I love your poll. Make me feel like i'm playing lottery. LOL. I can't wait if my vote is going to win! You always give us difficult choices. That means, whatever it is I'll be happy. Ha! Have a great weekend!

  30. This fudge looks amazing! And, yes, I won't lie...I do like {love!} chocolate. There is no Derby Pie to be found in San Diego, but I did find a recipe for chocolate pecan pie from Terra at Cafe Terra that looks delicious. Thanks so much for your comment on my Tea post :-) Have fun with all your wedding planning!
