Hot Chocolate Brownie Pie is a fudgy hot chocolate brownie topped with a layer of chocolate pudding mousse and fresh whipped cream. And of course lots of marshmallows when it is time to serve!

  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup hot chocolate mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ baking powder
  • 2 packages (3.4 oz. each) instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided
  • ½ cup powdered sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract, divided
  • Mini marshmallows
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9” spring form pan or pie plate with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together vegetable oil, cocoa powder, and hot chocolate mix until you get a paste. Beat in eggs and sugar. Fold in flour, salt, and baking powder until just combined.
  3. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until the edges are set and a test toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  4. Once brownies have cooled, make the pudding mousse. In a bowl, whisk together pudding and milk for 2 minutes. Set aside for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, whisk 1 cup heavy cream until soft peaks form.
  5. Add ¼ cup powdered sugar and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract and whisk until the peaks become stiff. Fold whipped cream into the pudding mixture and spread over the cooled brownie. Place in fridge for 2 hours to set.
  6. When it is time to serve, make the whipped cream. Using an electric mixer, whisk the remaining heavy cream until soft peaks form. Add the rest of the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and whisk until the peaks become stiff. Put a dollop of whipped cream and a small handful of marshmallows over each slice to serve.
