Brownie Pie

funsweets

This gooey Brownie Pie is a chocolate lover’s dream. Intensely chocolatey with a gooey marshmallow topping and fudge frosting. Ridiculous!

Sometimes a simple brownie won’t do.

Sometimes a pie just don’t cut it.

And sometimes you need to bake a brownie in a crust and it’s still not enough.

What’s a girl to do?

These are the predicaments I get myself into these days. A dessert not quite over the top enough.

I have it pretty good. I know.

SO let’s take that whole pie and cover it with marshmallows and fudge frosting and call it a day.

I have a friend who makes brownies this way and they are outrageously good….so why not a whole pie done the same way?

 

I mean, wouldn’t you like a slice or 5 of this guy? Brownie Pie on BLAST!

Gorgeous Brownie PIE! Super chocoalte brownie on a sweet graham crust, topped with goey marshmallow and fudgy frosting

The recipe is actually fairly easy…I made a pretty simple graham cracker crust…

Then I chopped up some chocolate.

The chocolate gets melted and mixed with some cocoa powder, flour and other brownie stuff and poured right into the crust.

Then bake it!

When it’s done load it up with a million marshmallows. And toast them a little. I may have over-toasted them…but I have a thing for brown mallows. So it’s up to you how tan you like yours to get.

Loosen the pie from the sides of the crust and remove from the springform pan…

Then yeah, pour frosting all over the top of it. Gah, so good.

Covering my Brownie PIe in Fudge Frosting make sit insanely delicious!!

Just a simple little pie.

Brownie Pie...a twist on a Mud Pie, but without the nuts!

And dig in to the richest most decadent dessert ever.

Brownie Pie...RIDICULOUS!

Seriously, I totally agree. When a brownie is not enough, a pie with brownie totally hits the spot. And with marshmallows and chocolate? I’m kind of dying right now.

Hi!! This looks amazing! But I was wondering, the brownie part doesn’t call for any sugar, is that because the marshmallows and frosting are so sweet? I just thought it would be kind of bland without sugar. Anyway, I will be for sure trying this! Thanks! 😉

Let me just say that your cake stand is so cute! I love the wooden base:) My husband just walked by when I was reading your post and asked when I was going to make this… He’s all about the chocolate, like this brownie pie is. Pinned!

Could it be baked in a regular pie pan? I don’t have a springform.

Guest

I love all the toppings on here! So decadent with the chocolate drizzle. I’m imagining all the layers of flavor going on … crust, fudgy brownie, marshmallow, melted chocolate… YAY!

Does this ever look delish, I don’t have a spring form pan, so could it be made in a 9×12″ dish? Please say yes LOL
If not, off to get a 9″ spring form pan!!!

Guest

I had an epic fail the first time I attempted this recipe the day before Thanksgiving. I did as instructed and removed the pie from the oven, put marshmallows on top and broiled them, then took out and removed the side of the pan……it totally collapsed. I looked up the original in Southern Living and saw they said to cool for 20 minutes before putting the marshmallows on. I made a second pie and it worked.

Could you please, please do gram measurements? All your recipes are in cups and I don’t understand that as it’s not used here. All websites I try to convert cups to grams and they’re all quite different so I can’t make any of your recipes :(

Just made this and entered it in our neighborhood block party pie bake-off. I added chopped Reeses on the top and a peanut butter ganache drizzed over the chocolate frosting. I won first place! And it was devoured so quickly by my neighbors that I only got one bite off my son’s piece!
