What can I do if my marshmallows don’t melt properly?

  • There are two main reasons why your marshmallows didn’t melt properly.
    Oven temperature. If you forget to turn the oven to the broil setting, they won’t melt in 30 seconds or in 1 minute as the instructions say. If you want to melt marshmallows at 350ºF, it may take 2-3 minutes. Don’t let them burn!

How do I toast pecans?

It’s easy to toast pecans. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spread the pecans evenly on a baking sheet. Bake for 5-7 minutes, tossing halfway. They’re ready when they are fragrant and start to brown.

I like to use toasted pecans because they have a richer flavor and a crunchier texture.

How do I know when the brownie pie is done?

When the fudgy brownie pie is ready you can see that the edges slightly pull away from the sides of the pan. You can also insert a toothpick into the center of the pie, if it comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs, it’s done.

Frequently Asked Questions

Quick & Simple Fudge Brownie Pie Recipe

Can I use store-bought frosting instead?

Yes, you can use store-bought chocolate frosting instead of homemade. It can save you time and effort.

What if I don’t have an electric whisk for the frosting?

There is no problem! Just use a hand whisk to mix ingredients until smooth. It will take more time than with an electric mixer, but it’s easy!

What can I use if I don’t have a springform pan?

It’s not necessary to use a springform pan. You can also use a regular 9-inch cake pan or a pie plate for this recipe.

What does “sifted” mean for the cocoa and powdered sugar?

I recommend sifting the cocoa powder and powdered sugar because it helps to remove any lumps. As a result, you will have a smooth texture of batter and frosting. You can use a fine-mesh strainer or sifter.

Can I make this pie without nuts?

Of course! You can make a delicious fudge brownie pie without pecans or other nuts. Just skip this ingredient.

How long should I let the pie cool before serving?

Let the fudge brownie pie cool for at least 1 hour. This allows the filling and frosting to set, making it easier to slice and serve.
