Crispy, fudge, and caramelized are the three words that come from each bite of this Chocolate Brownie Pie and trust me, it will be hard to eat any other brownie. Maybe not a traditional pie, but ever since the first time I made this Chocolate Brownie Pie, it had so many layers that it reminded me of the perfect pie. I love the idea of a round brownie versus square or rectangle, it can be sliced into wedges and can be served with fresh fruit, chocolate ganache sauce or can be left just the way it is. Brownies are my kind of dessert, they can be simple or they can be super fancy and it is really all about the ingredients you put in them. Picking your chocolate is one of the most important factors of a brownie. I use semi sweet chocolate, which gives the brownies a nice depth of flavor and not to sweet…and this is a fancy brownie. A brownie that your little ones will love, but can also be served at the fanciest dinner party and everyone will have rave reviews.
The way that the Chocolate Brownie Pie bakes and creates three very distinct layers. This is nothing that you are going to have to do for the brownie, it does it itself! The first layer that you will recognize is the crunch. The brownie will have a slight cracked look on the top once it is baked, but don't worry this is all good! The crunch adds the perfect texture once you enter into the fudge layer. More on the traditional side of a brownie, the fudge layer is decadent, rich and full of flavor. The final layer of the Chocolate Brownie Pie is a caramelized flavor. Not something you typically see while making and eating a brownie, but this is where it gets good. These three layers of the Chocolate Brownie Pie is why it is so special.
