Chocolate Silk Pie Brownies
Have you ever made a dish and instantly knew it was a winner?
This French Silk Pie Brownies recipe was exactly that! My husband even asked me if I could make it again so he could take it to work – and he never asks to take stuff to work to share! ? I already have plans to make this for our Labor Day cookout and when we have friends over for dinner next month!
This recipe starts off with a boxed brownie mix. It gets topped off with an easy to make French silk pie filling, then a layer of whipped topping. Chocolate shavings or in my case, mini chocolate chips, make the perfect garnishment.
The Domestic Rebel
I wish I could take credit for the delicious treat, but I cannot. This recipe comes from my blogging friend, Hayley Parker of The Domestic Rebel. She is such a rock star! Her newest cookbook, Two in One Desserts, hit shelves June 20th and is available wherever books are sold, including Amazon. If you love creative dessert recipes, this is a must-have cookbook!
Two in One Desserts is brimming with decadent dessert hybrids. They are easy, creative, fearlessly fun, and one-of-a-kind!
I hope you have better luck deciding which recipe to try first or next because I want to try them all – and if this French Silk Pie Brownies recipe is any testament to the other recipes, I’ll also be adding stretchy pants to my next shopping list! Actually, I suggest you try this recipe first because it is the bomb-dot-com.
I hate even to mention it, but ya know the holidays are just around the corner – they’ll be here before we know it – consider gifting this cookbook to any bakers on your list!
Here are some of the other recipes that caught my eye: Carrot Cake Gooey Cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie Bomb Cake, Donut Upside Down Cake, Muddy Buddy Bars, Pecan Pie Gooey Bars, Fudge Brownie Pie, Baklava Pie, Fruity Cereal No-Bake Cheesecake, and Brownie Batter Mousse ….. I don’t even know how I’ll decide which recipe to try next – they all sound soooo good!
