Cravings. We all have them. Some people strictly crave sweets and others like the saltier things in life. Me? I go back and forth. Most of the time I crave a combination of both, but when a specific craving hits — it hits hard. If my sweet tooth decides to make an appearance, I know I better make room for something seriously decadent to come through, usually in the form of the one and only — Chocolate. Chocolate is front and center of these rich, gooey, dense fudge-like brownies topped with a dark chocolate ganache and studded with hot chocolate flavored Milky Ways. Hot Chocolate Milky Way Brownie Pie totally satisfied my chocolate cravings, and I’m 100% positive it’ll take care of yours too.

I’m not the only one with a craving — the #SundaySupper crew has plenty. That’s our theme for the week, Year End Cravings. We’re sharing recipes for things we have been craving all year long and are finally getting a chance to indulge. For our last #SundaySupper post of the year, we are going all out. Thank you to today’s host, Cindy of Cindy’s Recipes and Writings.

I can never pass up holiday-themed candies. I found Gingerbread Twix and Hot Chocolate Milky Ways at CVS the other day and snatched them up. Immediately my mind starting going in a million directions thinking of all the ways I could use them. When I was putting them away, a bag of marshmallows fell out of the cabinet, hitting me in the head and knocking an idea right into it! Marshmallows and hot chocolate are like the All American Couple. Or is that peanut butter and chocolate? Okay, so we have more than one All American Couple in the food world. Whatever. Marshmallows + Hot Chocolate = Heaven. Hot chocolate is something I always think about making but never do. It’s one of those cravings that I don’t even know I have until the smell of warm chocolate is wafting through the kitchen and I see little marshmallows bobbing around in a full mug. 

Hot Chocolate Milky Way Brownie Pie makes the rest of the brownies you made this year look amateur. Even the ones you made from scratch. Because, yes, I admit it. I cheated and used a boxed mix — but that’s only because there was dark chocolate ganache to be made and lots of little Hot Chocolate Milky Ways to unwrap. Sometimes short cuts are acceptable, and this is one of those times! Plus, boxed mixes are pretty freaking delicious, especially when you get all crazy with the rest of the ingredients in your dessert.

I baked the brownies in a 9-inch spring form cake pan to give it a pie-look, and sliced it up into slivers. I promise, a sliver is all you need. The brownie base to these Hot Chocolate Milky Way Brownie Pie is suuuuuuper rich, not to mention covered with a generous layer of ganache and LOADED with lots of chopped up Milky Way.
