Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Brownie Pie Recipe

I thought I had put this on the blog with the recipe but I have not. The Goddess Eos, you may know her as Aurora, likes chocolate and brownies. Who would'a thunk it. So, for old times sake and because I do need to get this on the blog, here it is.

Now, you can approach this recipe with two philosophies, one is the more pie or cake like philosophy of the original recipe and one is the more decadent dessert like recipe of my recipe. This is Kim's favorite and she likes the original better. I will put the original recipe in (parenthesis so you can substitute.) What follows is my version. The original recipe does not call for creaming butter and sugar but rather mixing the first set of ingredients together. (Sugar, margarine, eggs.)


1/3 cup soften butter (1/3 cup margarine)
1 1/2 cup sugar

Add slowly and beat well:

3 eggs


3/4 cup sifted flour
1/2 t salt

When this is well mixed add gently:

4 oz of melted 72% chocolate (3 squares chocolate or 9 T cocoa powder. If you use the powder increase margarine to 1/2 cup.)
1 t vanilla

And fold (blend) carefully.

Pour mixture into 9" pie plate and bake at 375F for 30-40 minutes (25-30 minutes) or until a skewer pulls out more or less cleanly. You can let this cool and it is great. Chocolaty to the max.

Try adding 5-6 oz of chocolate and have a blast. I personally like to put 6 oz of chocolate and make it very rich. But if you do that, it is more like a molten chocolate cake. The center doesn't really set. Go for it. I love this dessert.
