The Great Pie Bake-Off: Chocolate Brownie Tart with Chocolate Glaze

It's time again for me to share an entry for The Great Pie Bake-Off!  The November theme was Holiday Celebration Pies.

We are in the midst of Hanukkah, and just had our family get-together over the weekend.  So, the timing could not have been better!

I was also contacted by the folks at Domino Sugar recently asking if I would visit their recipe website featuring their products.  As I already use their product, that was an easy one to agree to do.  While I was there, I found a recipe that I thought would be perfect to serve as a sweet ending to our Hanukkah dinner, Chocolate Brownie Tart with Chocolate Glaze


From Family, Friends and Food

The consensus on this recipe was that it was a delicious ending to the meal, but the pie crust was not necessary.  Perhaps it could be changed to a graham cracker crust instead, the pie crust really did not compliment the brownie tart as much as a sweeter pastry might.  Another nice addition would be to drizzle some melted white chocolate over the top to dress it up a bit more, or for those who enjoy nuts you could sprinkle chopped nuts over the glaze before it sets. 

It was a nice ending to our meal, and I do think I would make it again but with the changes I mentioned. 

Thank you, to Domino Sugar, as they provided me with a gift card to purchase the ingredients.  If you need some inspiration for homemade gift ideas, please head over to their Gift Ideas portion of their website.


Disclosure:  The PR folks at DEI Worldwide sent me a gift card to use toward the purchase of ingredients to make a recipe from the Domino Sugar recipe website.

As a chocoholic, I think this pie looks decadent and very droolworthy, Patsy.I do like the sound of your changes though. I may have to try this for Christmas as some of my family loves having a chocolate dessert included in the desserts!

Even though you didn't love the crust, your pie still looks really good. We love chocolate desserts here. Happy Hanukkah!
