Gooey Brownie Pie – a gooey chocolate brownie with a crackly top baked into a pie and topped with hot fudge. A delicious and easy dessert for any chocolate lover.
Brownies are kind of my thing. Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies. Or just regular fudgy brownies. They are pretty much my favorite dessert. We are up to about 30 brownie recipes here on the blog, so there is no shortage of options. I like them with frosting, without frosting, topped with a creamy mousse, added to cheesecake and just about any other way you can make them! And this brownie pie might be the ultimate gooey chocolate treat.
I can’t remember where I saw this recipe first, but as soon as I saw the picture, I knew I had to make it. Maybe it was shared on Facebook, I don’t remember. But one thing I know, is Ina Garten knows how to bake. Her Outrageous Brownies are amazing, so I knew this gooey brownie pie would be too.
Her recipe called for a chocolate ganache (melted chocolate chips with heavy cream) drizzled over the top. But I wanted to make it a little extra special. So I made Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sauce from A Dash of Sanity to spread over the top. You could follow the original recipe, use my special touch, or even just use your favorite hot fudge sauce over the top. Whatever form of extra chocolate you add will be delicious.
How to Make Brownie Pie
This has most of the same ingredients traditional brownies do, but the ratios are a little different, so it is extra fudgy and that crackly top is perfect!
- Start by melting the butter and chocolate together until it is nice and smooth. Cool this slightly so it doesn’t scramble the eggs when you mix it all together.
- Separately beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla for about 3 minutes until it is super light and fluffy.
- Pour the cooled chocolate in and mix until it is combined.
- Fold in the flour, baking powder and salt until it is just combined. Then add in the rest of the chocolate.
- Pour into a prepared spring form pan to bake. You can use a pie plate or cake pan if you don’t have one, but you will only use about 3/4 of the batter. This does rise in the oven, and the sides of a spring form pan keep it in place.
- Once it has puffed up and a tester comes out clean it is done. Let it cool before slicing.
- To serve top with chocolate sauce.
The brownie pie puffs up as it bakes, and the tops gets crackly and delicious. But the inside stays gooey, rich, and super chocolatey. I wanted mine to stay all chocolate, but you could mix in walnuts if that is more your thing. I am not a fan of nuts in desserts, so I skipped that part.
If you have a chocolate lover in your life, this is the dessert to make for them. It is really easy to make, with just a few minutes of work and ingredients you probably have in your kitchen already, you can have this in the oven. Perfect when for birthdays, special desserts at home, or just because those chocolate cravings strike!
