Happy National Pi Day! Our second pie today is pudding with brownie pieces, topped with homemade whipped cream and more brownie pieces.
My daughter helped me make this pie one afternoon. She got to mix up the pudding, help mix up the brownies, pour the pudding into the pie shell, and of course, lick the spoons! We had a lot of fun making this simple pie together.
Frozen pie crust, baked according to directions on the package and cooled
5 oz box of chocolate pudding mix
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 Tablespoons maple syrup (more or less to taste, you can also use powdered sugar if you don't care for maple syrup)
Your favorite brownie recipe (I used this recipe here), baked in an 8x8 or 9x9 pan and cooled
Place bowl of stand mixer in refrigerator. In a large bowl, whisk together chocolate pudding mix and milk. Put in refrigerator to set up.
Cut brownies into 1 inch cubes, set aside 5-8 brownie cubes for the top of the pie.
Using cooled bowl, whip heavy whipping cream on medium high speed with stand mixer. Whip until stiff peaks form. Fold in maple syrup (or desired sweetener).
Stir brownie cubes into set up pudding. Pour into prepared pie shell. Top with whipped cream and reserved brownie pieces. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
