Picture this: a crispy, crackly top concealing a rich, gooey, and chocolatey interior. That, my friends, is the magic of the Gooey Brownie Pie. I’m thrilled to share this irresistible treat with you, one that merges the best of two worlds: the dense, fudgy brownie and the classic pie. Trust me, your taste buds are in for a wild ride, and your kitchen will be filled with the most delightful aroma!

Ingredients

  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

How to Make Gooey Brownie Pie

  1. Preheat and Prep: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a pie plate or a 9-inch springform pan to prevent sticking.
  2. Melt Chocolate and Butter: In a heat-safe bowl, melt 6 tablespoons of butter and 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips together until smooth. You can use a double boiler or microwave them at 50% power in 30-second intervals. Stir in between to avoid burning, and let it cool once melted.
  3. Beat Eggs and Sugar: In an electric mixer, beat together 3 eggs, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix on medium-high speed until the mixture turns light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  4. Combine Chocolate and Egg Mixtures: Add the cooled chocolate mixture to the fluffy eggs and sugar, mixing gently until combined.
  5. Add Dry Ingredients: Fold in ½ cup of flour, ¼ teaspoon of baking powder, and ¼ teaspoon of salt until just combined. Stir in the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips for an extra gooey finish.
  6. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the center is puffed and the top is cracked. A toothpick inserted should come out with some moist crumbs attached.
  7. Cool and Serve: Let the pie cool completely before slicing. Top each slice with warm hot fudge sauce before serving for that extra indulgence!

Helpful Tips

  • Chocolate Quality: Use high-quality chocolate chips for the best flavor. Semi-sweet is great, but you can use dark chocolate for a richer taste.
  • Don’t Overmix: Once the dry ingredients are added, fold gently to maintain the batter’s airy texture.
  • Pan Choice: If you prefer a more cake-like texture, use a springform pan.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Nuts: Add ½ cup of chopped walnuts or pecans to the batter for a delightful crunch.
  • Gluten-Free: Substitute the flour with a gluten-free blend for a celiac-friendly treat.
  • Mint Chocolate: Replace the vanilla extract with peppermint extract and add crushed mint candies for a refreshing twist.
