How to Make Fudge Pie
Next, start making the pie filling.
In a heavy saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and the condensed milk together on very low heat. Melt until it is smooth and creamy.
Add the cocoa powder, cream cheese and continue stirring until it has melted into the chocolate mixture.
Next, add the vanilla and raspberries to the pot.
In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and water until it is smooth. Then add it to the chocolate mixture and stir for a minute. This will thicken the mixture.
Remove it from the heat and stir in a pinch of salt and chopped pecans, if you are adding them.
Let the pie filling cool for 15 minutes.
Remove the pie crust from the freezer and pour the filling on top. Put the pie in the refrigerator and allow to cool and set for at least 4 hours.
Once the pie has set it is time to make the chocolate topping.
In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chip, sugar, and heavy cream. Heat it in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time, stirring between each set until the chocolate chips are melted.
Let the mixture cool about 5 minutes.
Remove the pie from the refrigerator and pour the chocolate topping on top of the pie.
Place milk chocolate chips on top of the chocolate topping and place the pie back into the refrigerator overnight.
When you are ready to serve, place raspberries on top, cut into 8 slices and enjoy.

In a heavy sauce pan, over low heat, melt the chocolate chips and the sweetened condensed milk, until smooth and creamy.
Add the cocoa powder, and cream cheese, and continue to stir the mixture until the cream cheese is melted into the chocolate mixture.

Let the mixture cool for about 15 minutes, then remove the crust from the freezer, and pour the chocolate filling into the pie dish, and place the dish in the refrigerator.
Allow the chocolate pie filling to completely cool, and set in the refrigerator, about 4 hours.
When the pie filling has set up, or looks thick and firm, make the chocolate topping.
In a microwave safe bowl, add the dark chocolate chips, sugar, and heavy cream, and place in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Remove the dish, and stir well, then return to the microwave for 30 seconds, and stir again.
If all the chocolate chips are not melted, place in the microwave again for 15 seconds, remove and stir again.
Repeat until all chocolate chips are melted, and the sugar and cream are completely mixed into the chocolate.
Remove from microwave and cool for about 5 minutes, or until cool to the touch.
Remove pie from refrigerator, and pour the chocolate topping on top of the pie filling.
