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.

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
