Okay, I have to know… are you a chocaholic?  I’d have to say that I am, but I go through periods where I prefer other kinds of sweets.  But I do always come back to my beloved chocolate lol.  For example, I just asked my 3 year old what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday next month, and inside my head I was squealing in delight when he said “chocolate cake!”.

I’ve actually been thinking about different chocolate desserts, planning ahead with blog posts for the rest of the summer and into fall, which got me thinking about these two chocolate recipes… the insanely popular brownie bottom cookie dough cheesecake, and my new personal favorite, the rolo-stuffed skillet brownie!  You all have pinned, left comments, and sent emails about how much you love those two recipes, so I know at least some of you are as in love with chocolate as I am 😉

This recipe comes to you straight out of my fellow blogger Hayley’s new cookbook, Two in One Desserts!  Hayley blogs over at  The Domestic Rebel, and this is her second cookbook.  She ROCKS!!  Let me tell you, there aren’t a whole lot of cookbooks that strike me as a must have, but when flipping through all the recipes in her book, I had a very hard time picking a recipe to share.  They all look amazing!!  You can buy her amazing cookbook HERE.

The whole concept behind her book is sweet treats comprised of two (or more!) classic dessert recipes, combined in one mega-awesome dessert!  They’re all made semi-homemade, which is perfect for those of us with busy lives, and the recipes are so creative.  Obviously there’s these French Silk Pie Brownies, but there’s also Donut Bread Pudding, Whoopie Pie Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars, S’Mores Cookies, and MORE!

I’m fairly picky about my chocolate treats, and let me just tell you these French Silk Pie Brownies are just fantastic! So fudgy on the bottom, silky smooth on the top… they’re perfect for anyone who loves chocolate!

I’ve always been a fan of French silk pie, but am still learning to master the art of a great pie crust (hear all about my hilarious pie fail HERE!), plus traditionally, it’s made with raw eggs in the pie filling, which can weird some people out.  This amazing combination fixes both of those problems since the “crust” is brownies, and the filling is made egg-free!

Hayley’s recipe is written for a 9×13 pan full of brownies, but it can be made in an 8×8 pan as well, you’ll just have more filling on top (like in my photos).  If you do want to make it in the 9×13 pan, make sure you buy a box mix that is large enough… most brands have a “family size” and some even mention the 9×13 pan size on the box.  Either way, you can’t go wrong!

I hope you all give these awesome French Silk Pie Brownies a try, and don’t forget to pick up the Two in One Desserts cookbook!!

  1. Looks really silky and delicious

  2. When/how do you add the melted chocolate?

  3. Yes! You can’t go wrong with french silk! 🙂

  4. I need to get that cookbook because this looks absolutely amazing!

  5. Oh my goodness, I shouldn’t be looking at these pictures so late at night, it’s making me want to go downstairs and pull out some chocolate!! 🙂 This looks scrumptious!

  6. These look so creamy, so chocolate, so yummy! OMG! I want this!

  7. That topping is everything! I’m know for sure that I wouldn’t be able to stop at just a couple of bites.

  8. This is such a coincidence! I was just having lunch at one of those restaurants with the cases full of various pies and pastries that you can admire (read: slobber over) while you’re waiting to be seated. They had the most AMAZING looking French silk pie, and let me tell you, I was VERY tempted to order a slice. And now I find this mouthwatering recipe! I think the whole universe is working together to make sure I don’t stick to my cross country training diet! 😉

  9. These look absolutely decadent and SO amazing!!!

  10. From the pics, it looks super silky and smooth.. I’ll definitely make this recipe at home! Delicious!

  11. What is German Chocolate bar? Milk chocolate? Semi sweet?

    • Hi Beverley 🙂 German chocolate is a type of baking chocolate (like semi sweet or milk). I like to use Baker’s brand, but if you look in your baking aisle at the grocery store, they should have a bar that says German Chocolate on it 🙂

  12. What sized pan was used for this?!

    • Hi Carrie, I used an 8×8 pan for these photos, but it can also be made with a 9×13 pan, just make sure to get a brownie mix that’s made for that size (like the family size boxes).

  13. Hi ? I’m from Australia and wondering what a German chocolate bar is please?

  14. Can you use heavy whipping cream (whipped, of course) instead of Cool Whip? I know it will add a lot to the fat content, but will it effect flavor/texture at all?

  15. These may just be my new love language! haha! they look absolutely sinful!

  16. If doing it in a 9×13 pan, what do you think about doubling the topping?

  17. My daughter found this recipe and has requested it for her birthday. I am going to make the brownie’s from smitten kitchen’s recipe and real cream, whipped, instead of cool whip. I also plan to top it with a raspberry coulis. Will let you know how it turns out. Thanks for the inspiration.

  18. Legit speechless, these brownies looks unreal!!! I am obsessed with desserts! Definitely french silk pie brownies will be yummy! Thanks for sharing Amanda!

  19. This dessert looks fantastic!! Can it be made the day before?

  20. Do I refrigerate the left overs because of the French silk topping ? I always do this for French silk pie or mousse cake. I’ve answered my own question. I am making 4 batches for a birthday party. She wants these in lieu of a cake.

  21. I tried these this past weekend.They are delicious.I ate 2 big brownies and then I froze the rest of them.I wanted more,but I will have to wait until next week to have another one.This recipe is great,and easy to make.The french silk part is awesome,and the brownie part and whipped cream compliment it perfectly.This recipe is a keeper,it’s a 10.Thanks.

  22. Wow…Delicious! I ended up making a 9″ x 13″ pan using 1 box of brownie mix and doubling the recipe. Also spread the whipped topping over the top to balance out the richness and it worked out perfectly!
