Tar Heel Brownie Pie  is my recipe of the day for the blogging event Valentine’s Day  Chocolate Week. I shared some cookies on Monday and a Coca-Cola cake yesterday and wanted to finish up with a Tar Heel Pie.

Tar Heel Brownie Pie

The Tar Heel  pie is a very Southern, North Carolina version of fudge pie. If you ate a brownie in a pie crust this would almost be it.

The chocolate flavor is intense and over the top. It’s very rich so you get slightly more pieces per pie (8 instead of 6 or 7). It goes great with ice cream ala mode to help cut the richness.

Perfect for when  you want to impress, the pie also is great for a bar-be-cue. Try putting one out as a finishing dessert after smoking up some pulled pork. You’ll make many friends. Don’t forget to send them here for the recipe and much more.
