Easy Fudge Pie

Rule #177: Sometimes, things really do need to be easy as pie.

With all the craziness and uncertainty going on these days, we could all use a little treat that’s simple to make (and can be made with things still very much available at the store). My sweet Momma’s birthday was last weekend, and I wanted to bring her a little something sweet. This was the perfect, easy dessert to whip up and drop on her porch! We sang “Happy Birthday” from a distance, and it made us all feel a little more normal.
