Prizewinning Plates: Chocolate Heaven Brownie Pie

By The Paula Deen Test Kitchen

Y’all, it’s true. This brownie is true its name – here’s a sweet treat that is NOTHING short of heavenly.

When PaulaDeen.com user, Kelli, submitted her recipe to our Prizewinning Plates competition, we knew we had an instant winner. A sweet macadamia nut crust and an ooey gooey chocolate filling are perfectly paired in a little slice of heaven that will please any sweet tooth!

Without further ado – here’s Kelli’s Chocolate Heaven Brownie Pie. (And don’t forget a ice cold glass of milk to wash it all down!)

Chocolate Heaven Brownie Pie

Ingredients
Crust:
1/2 lb. butter, room temperature
2 C. powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 C. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 C/ chopped Macadamia nuts

Filling:
1 box Family Size brownie mix (additional ingredients per box)
1 C. milk chocolate chips

Topping:
2 containers of sweetened whipped topping (like Cool Whip), defrosted in refrigerator
Chocolate syrup

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, combine all ingredients for crust and mix together until combined. Do not over-mix, or crust will be hard. Pour mixture into a greased 9x13 pan and gently press down to form crust. Bake for 10 minutes. Note: crust will not be cooked completely as it will be baked again with filling.

In a separate bowl, combine all ingredients for brownie mix according to box directions until well-combined. Add 1 cup chocolate chips and mix to combine.

Take out crust from oven and pour brownie mixture into crust and return to over for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until brownie filling is cooked. At the end of 20 minutes, check filling toothpick. Toothpick should come out clean. If there is still a lot of brownie filling stuck to the toothpick, return to oven for an additional 5-10 minutes. Brownie filling should be a little fudge-y. Cool completely.

Once cooled, add the two containers of cool whipe and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight for brownie filling to completely set.

Cut into squares and enjoy.
