Fudge Brownie Recipe in a Pie
After making brownies from scratch a while ago, I realized that whipping up a fudge brownie recipe is no sweat! No need for boxed brownie mix here (although you can use it if you prefer), because this brownie dessert is simple. We ARE using a pre-made pie crust to make things easy, and then you just pour the brownie batter straight in to bake. Brownies and Pie all in one. The best of both worlds!
Brownies and Ice Cream
Brownies aren’t quite complete without some ice cream on the side. I just LOVE the way cold ice cream melts on top of warm brownies. Everything mixes together so perfectly; hot and cold, chocolate and vanilla. So of course we need that same combo with this brownie pie. Grab a slice while it’s warm, top it of with a scoop of ice cream, drizzle on some more chocolate, and enjoy!

Heat oven to 350°F and have a single pie crust, blind-baked and cooled completely.
- Melt 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl and heat at 50% power, stirring often, about 90 seconds or until the chocolate is almost melted.

- In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt until creamy and smooth.
- Add the chocolate mixture and whisk until incorporated.
- Add the flour and the remaining 1/3 cup of chocolate chips. Stir just until no dry flour remains.

Note: To reheat the pie, place it in a 300°F oven, 10-15 minutes, or until warm throughout.
Note: Be sure the pecans are toasted so they don’t get soggy, or do as I do and buy toasted/roasted pecans or Honey Roasted Pecans.
