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!)
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
1 box Family Size brownie mix (additional ingredients per box)
1 C. milk chocolate chips
2 containers of sweetened whipped topping (like Cool Whip), defrosted in refrigerator
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.

Susan Lott is a great party planner! She has tons of great ideas that she needs to share with the online world. I have been begging her to start a Facebook page or Etsy account. The graduation gift that she made me was hand drawn with my name and different definitions for each letter. She framed it and I cherish it.....I also would have paid about $50 for it in a store. Thanks for sharing her idea but this idea is nothing compared to some of her other quick and money saving tips! You should hire her for your creative team!
Love you Susu!
