Even though dessert was the last course we served for the night, we wanted it to be the first recipe that we shared with you. It was a definite crowd pleaser at the party! We had so many people asking us for the recipe! At first we were a little embarrassed to admit that we used a box mix for the brownies. But the more we thought about it, the more comfortable we became with it. The reason we picked a Ghirardelli mix was because we checked the ingredient list and it was everything we would use if we made brownies from scratch. And when we knew were making 18 pies, we figured we’d take all the help we could get!
Obviously, no one could tell they were from a box! They were super rich and decadent with a little warmth from the cinnamon. The real whipped cream took it over the top! We heard that at one table each person took their first bite as they got to the table and exclaimed to themselves, “Whoa!..” We’ll take that as a complement!
It was hard to break this recipe down much more than this. Sorry that it still makes 3 pies, serving 18 people. The good thing about these pies is that they are frozen so you can just keep a couple on hand to pull out later for a last minute dessert.
