Gooey Brownie Pie


Oh friends, have I got a dessert for you today that is going to rock your chocolatey world. This Gooey Brownie Pie is, hands down, one of the richest, most decadent, fudgiest treats you’ll ever have the pleasure of sinking your teeth into.

We’re talking an ultra-thick, dense chocolate brownie base baked up in a pie plate until the center is molten and the top gets that signature crackly crust. But then you take it one indulgent step further by drizzling the whole thing with an ooey-gooey hot fudge sauce just before serving. It’s honestly insane in the most delightfully sinful way.

I first came across this mind-blowing dessert while scrolling through my social media feeds one night. As soon as I saw that cross-section shot of the fudgy interior surrounded by crackly brownie edges, I knew I had to bake it ASAP. Anything that looks that intensely chocolatey and gooey is an automatic must-make in my book!

Let me just say, it absolutely lived up to the hype. This brownie pie was every bit as decadent and swoon-worthy as I’d imagined. In fact, it’s so insanely rich that even a small slice is supremely satisfying. Though I definitely went back for seconds…and maybe thirds. No judgement!

Why This Brownie Pie Deserves a Permanent Spot in Your Dessert Rotation

  • It combines the best parts of a fudgy brownie and a molten lava cake into one epic dessert.
  • The recipe is super easy to whip up with just a few simple ingredients.
  • You can have it prepped and in the oven in about 10 minutes. So convenient!
  • Baking it in a pie plate gives you those coveted crackly, chewy edges in every slice.
  • Topping it with hot fudge sauce sends it over the top into pure chocolate bliss.
  • This is a total crowd pleaser for both kids and adults at parties and holidays.

Tips for Gooey Brownie Pie Perfection

  • Be sure to let the melted butter and chocolate cool slightly before mixing it into the batter. This ensures the eggs don’t scramble.
  • Beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla very well until light and fluffy for an extra fudgy interior.
  • Don’t overmix once the dry ingredients are added or the pie could get dense and cakey.
  • A springform pan helps the pie bake up nice and tall with dramatic sides. But you can use a pie plate in a pinch.
  • Let the pie cool completely before slicing and topping with hot fudge sauce for clean slices.
  • For an extra flourish, add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch pie plate or springform pan with non-stick spray.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and 2 cups of the chocolate chips together in 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until completely smooth. Allow to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla together with a hand mixer on medium-high speed for 3 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • With the mixer on low, slowly stream in the slightly cooled melted chocolate mixture until fully incorporated.
  • Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the flour, baking powder, and salt just until combined. Then fold in the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pie plate or springform pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the center is puffed up and the top is crackly. The center will still be quite jiggly.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely at room temperature.
  • Once cooled, slice and serve with hot fudge sauce drizzled over the top.

Serving Suggestions

  • For an extra flourish, top each slice with whipped cream, ice cream, or chocolate shavings.
  • Enjoy this gooey brownie pie slightly warm or at room temperature.
  • Leftovers can be stored covered at room temperature for 2-3 days.
