This Almond Fudge Brownie Pie is a tasty grown-up way to enjoy brownies. Serve it warm or at room temperature a la mode, if you dare.
Almond Fudge Brownie Pie
There's something warm and fuzzy about the aroma of brownies baking in the oven. It's one of those smells that takes you back to childhood and it's always a pleasant addition to any desserts table. This recipe is simple, but very fudgy, rich and decadent. Fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on the side is a must! I prefer to serve it slightly warm, so, if you prepare this pie in advance warm each piece just before serving.
Helpful Tips for Making Brownie Pie
- This pie is unapologetically rich. It can be served warm or at room temperature. If making in advance, pieces can be gently re-warmed in the microwave individually.
- You can use milk or dark chocolate chips in this recipe, if you prefer.
- If you don't care for almonds, you can sub pecans or walnuts in the same amount.
- When serving this pie warm, it's vanilla ice cream hands down as the topping. At room temperature, whipped cream works nicely.
