Brownie Bottom Pie

*Originally posted on my previous blog on 4/28/09


I wanted a yummy dessert this Sunday afternoon so I took a look at what I had in the pantry. After taking inventory of what I had on hand, I did a quick search online. I adapted this from a recipe I found on

The original recipe called for making the brownie from scratch but I had a brownie mix on hand and just used that. I had a family size brownie mix so I divided the batter. I put half in the pie plate and half in an 8×8 pan.

To make this you need:
1 small package brownie mix
1 box instant chocolate pudding mix
1 container cool whip or whipped cream
1 chocolate bar(optional)


Mix brownies according to package directions. Spread batter into a 9 inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 22-28 minutes or until middle is set. Cool completely.
Mix pudding according to package directions. Pour over brownie in pie plate and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the pudding set. 
Top with cool whip or whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Serve and enjoy.
