You know those people that take a bite of dessert and say “oh, that’s too rich for me.” Well picture the complete opposite of that and that is basically me. The more decadent the dessert, the more I love it. I have a massive sweet tooth and will choose sweet over salty probably about 99% of the time. This Brownie Pie is definitely one of those super decadent desserts that should be sliced up thin because a small piece is more than enough for most people. I, of course, like to throw a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top because the gooey chocolate just goes so well with the creamy vanilla flavor.
I always have a few holiday parties to attend and I like to sign up for desserts when I need to take something. This Brownie Pie is easy to put together and I usually have most of these ingredients on hand so I don’t need to run out and pick anything up. If anything, it’s usually the crust I end up buying.
Boxed Brownie Mix
Now you can also use a boxed brownie mix to make this if you are running low on time or just find it easier to make this way but making it from scratch really does give it an extra delicious texture and flavor. I’m not knocking it though, I tend to love anything that has a brownie base. I did find a great product review on modernhoney.com that puts brownie mixes to the taste test. Definitely check out who took the crown in this bake off on her website.
Alright, so gather up your ingredients and let’s get this party started! Like I mentioned earlier, most of the ingredients needed for this recipe you’ll most likely have on hand, especially if you are an avid baker.
Healthier but not really…
Although I do try to use certain ingredients that will make this a SLIGHTLY healthier version, it’s still a brownie. Which no matter which way you spin it, unless you’re making black bean brownies of some sort, this is definitely not going to be too diet friendly. Delicious and well worth it, well that’s for sure.Print

I used sugar free chocolate chips and baking stevia for this recipe. You can always use regular chocolate chips instead. If you prefer to use regular sugar change to one cup instead of 1/2 of Stevia. Baking directions will still be the same.
