DECADENT BROWNIE PIE — A rich chocolate brownie base is topped off with a layer of chocolate ganache in this truly decadent dessert.
My middle-son (the one with great culinary vision) chose this recipe for Decadent Brownie Pie when it was his turn to help with dinner, and I am so glad he did.
What’s not to love about that? And it’s easy to make too! The recipe is fairly simple and the ingredients are pretty basic, but the result is something I would pay money for in a restaurant.
There are lots of yummy choices for garnish, including Andes mints, raspberries, ice cream or caramel. Leftovers should be stored in the refrigerator, but the pie will taste best if you bring it to room temperature before serving.
I hope you love this decadent dessert as much as my family did!Print
