YUM!! This looks wonderful. Time to make me up some more Carbquick LC cookie and flour mix to try this!! Thanks for still coming up with wonderful great LC recipes!! Can I make this with the Carblose version. I think you can but just wanted to make sure.

Oh my! the center of that pie looks yummy gooey rather than cakey. Or somewhere between. Is that the case? Whatever texture, it just looks yumm-o!

Hows the cold weather treating you, Kev?

I'm also figuring you might make this "crustless" too.

Thanks for a lovely recipe!!

This looks exactly like what I've been craving. My only problem is a lack of sf chocolate chips-nada-none. I saw your recipe for them on another post. If I made these, would they work in this pie? Also, I have no cocoa butter. Would Walmart, my only option in my small town, have cocoa butter, do you think?

Sweeteater 01-26-2008 09:13 AM

looks yum! How does it taste? :D

ReneeD70 01-26-2008 09:55 AM

Looks like it would be perfect with my hot cuppa joe. Mmmmm!

Kevinpa 01-26-2008 12:37 PM

Cristina, as I have always said, either mix will work in almost all recipes. I chose carbquik this time to shave a few carb off.

Janie, you get the best of both worlds. The filling is gooey and mixed with pie crust it makes a great compliment. You could make it crustless but you would miss half the fun.

Blue, you could use th chips I make but basically all you are doing in this recipe is melting the chips to make a sweet chocolate. If I didn't have any chips, I might have gone another way and got my sweetened chocolate flavoring from cocoa and sweetener or maybe even Lindt 85%.
BTW netrition sells cocoa butter.

Sweeteater, it tasted just like the gooey chocolatey crusty dessert I had been craving. :laugh:

Chocolate
 
Oh groan. I am turning my oven on now.

Tweaker Geek 01-26-2008 01:50 PM

As you all know by now, I love chocolate and this looks wonderful!

I've been wondering today what yummy treat I was going to make tomorrow and I know now - thank you, Kevin!:)

Ok Kevin..that is what I thought. My mind is playing tricks on me today. :doh:
And since I dont have any SF chocolate chips I am going to use Lindt 85% with some sweetener or do I need that?

Thanks and HUGS

I would add some but it really depends on how sweet you like your chocolate. For example if I know or think my DW will be eating something I make that is chocolate, I will automatically add more sweetener since she likes sweet chocolate. I on the other hand enjoy the taste of chocolate and prefer mine less sweet with more of a chocolate bite to it. Sweeteners with chocolate, in my opinion, are a lot like spices, their amount is a preference not mandatory.

How different is this in texture to your brownie recipes?

It's different, sort of a cross between a brownie and fudge....thus the name.

jacksmixedtape 01-26-2008 04:56 PM

Sounds divine! I am going to try this with a gluten-free flour (pecan meal?). Hopefully it will be just as fudgy. Your photo totally sold me, Kevin! *drooling*

Pictures are fantastic. What's this:2 cans Nestle Media Crema?

That's what I was afraid of! :eek: :D

Kevin,

I made your brownie pie this weekend, and it was oh so good. It looked nothing like yours, though. It turned out more like a silk pie because I used cocoa, extra butter, and erythritol instead of the chocolate chips. I will make this again as I really enjoyed it. Thanks again for all the work you do for us.

One more question. Have you ever tried to make butterfingers? I found a recipe online for butterfingers, but wasn't sure if low carb butterfingers were a possibility. What do you think? What would you use for the chocolate coating?

Kevinpa 01-28-2008 06:42 PM

I don't think you are talking about candy bars but thats the only butterfinger I know about.

blueenough 01-28-2008 06:54 PM

Yes, I am. Perhaps I should have asked these questions on a separate thread?

Tweaker Geek 01-29-2008 05:28 PM

Brownie Fudge Pie -- I made it, I tried it, I like it!!:laugh:

clyde 01-11-2009 07:01 AM

I had to resurrect this thread. I finally tried this today and I feel like I have died and gone to heaven!! Kevin, this was outstanding!!

I subbed 6 square of baker's chocolate (I know...gross...but I'm trying to use it up) and deleted about 1/8 cup of flour mix and subbed my sweeteners to equal about 1 1/4 cup. I also cooked it in the toaster oven at 300 degrees for 20 minutes (I like brownie stuff somewhat undercooked) and the toaster oven cooks things too fast!

This is to die for!!!:clap:
