Fudgy Brownie Pie

  • Yield 10 servings

This fudgy rich brownie dessert looks like it came from the bakery, but is simply made with brownie mix, instant pudding and whipped topping.


1/3 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons instant dark roast or espresso coffee, divided
1 (19.85-ounce) box fudge brownie mix
1 egg
2 egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup pecans
3/4 cup skim milk
1 (4-serving) box instant chocolate fudge pudding and pie filling mix
1 (8-ounce) container fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Chocolate shavings for decoration, if desired


  1. Preheat oven 350F. Spray a pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine water and 1 teaspoon coffee until dissolved. Set aside.
  3. Stir together brownie mix, coffee mixture, egg, egg whites, and vanilla until well mixed. Add pecans. Spoon batter into pie plate and bake 25-28 minutes, until pie is set, but still has a fudgey center. Do not overbake.
  4. Combine milk and remaining 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee until coffee is dissolved. Stir in pudding mix until thick, then add half of the whipped topping.
  5. After pie is sufficiently cooled, spread pudding mix over the top. Add almond extract to remaining whipped topping, then spoon over pudding mixture. Refrigerate and garnish with chocolate shavings.
