Stop what you are doing and make this Minny’s Chocolate Pie right now! I made this for the 4th of July, and it was SO good! I have a serious weakness for ooey, gooey, fudgy brownies. This is basically a crazy good light and fudgy brownie pie. Crazy good I tell ya! PLUS it was really easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool so you can eat it.
We served the pie with some whipped cream and strawberries. It would also be really good slightly warmed with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. My only disappointment with the pie was that there were no leftovers!
