Brownie Pie

This gooey Brownie Pie recipe 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!

How to Make This Brownie Pie Recipe

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…

    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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    OMG…..Chocolate Heaven
    My hips got wider just by looking at this dessert but I’m still going to make it; adding a few stemmed maraschino cherries and chopped nuts on top….Yum Yum.
    Thanks 4 sharing this wonderful, rich looking dessert :}

  3. Cindy

    It is in my oven right now! We cannot wait to dig into it when its done! How should I store it after it cools….room temp or refrigerator?

  4. Sara

    It seems Ummmmmy, but I’m wondering how the graham cracker crumbs will bear the oven heat till the brownie filling will be baked ?? ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. 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!!!

      The baking time would need to be adjusted for a different sized pan, and it might work out to be a bit thinner, but it would work. If you have a deep dish pie pan that would work too!

    I am planning to make this for a function Sunday evening but I wont have time to make it Sunday during the day. Do you think it would still be ok if I made it Saturday afternoon?

    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 ๐Ÿ™

    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!
