READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
SERVES: 10-12
YIELD: 1 pie




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom & sides of a 9-inch pie plate.
  • FOR CRUST: In a mixing bowl, blend eggs, water and vanilla, mixing well.
  • Add brownie mix, soda, and flour, stirring until well blended. Spoon into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes (take note of brownie mix directions). Remove from oven (crust will be puffy); cool for 30-60 minutes. Press crust down with back of large spoon, forming to sides of pan to make a hollow for filling. Continue to cool while preparing filling.
  • FOR FILLING: Mix sugar and soft butter on medium speed--about 4 minutes until very fluffy (scrape sides down several times).
  • Add cream cheese and continue beating another minute or two. Then pour in the COOLED, melted chocolate, beat to incorporate and add the vanilla; scrape sides.
  • Slather filling over the crust. If using chocolate chips and nuts, sprinkle over the filling and press in gently. Chill.
  • FOR TOPPING: Use same mixing bowl, combine cream with sugar and cocoa, whipping until soft peaks form; whip another 30 seconds.
  • Sploosh over the filling, making delightful swirls.
  • Chill for several hours in fridge OR zap in the freezer for less time.
  • Right before serving, sprinkle with several dashes of snowflake-shaped or chocolate decors.
