I think the early morning people at ESPN Radio will appreciate this tomorrow morning. Plenty of sugar to wake them up or keep them awake! Brownie cake (I used the Nestle double chocolate brownie recipe, with a tweak or two) , sweet funfetti filling and chocolatell ganache on top (and let’s face it.. Chocolate ganache is just a fancy name for melted chocolate :))
Brownies (you can also use your favorite recipe or make 2 boxed brownie mixes as directed)
Ingredients – 3 cups chocolate chips, 3/4 cup butter, 4 1/2 eggs, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1 3/4 cups + 2 tbs flour, 1/4 + 1/8 tsp baking soda.
Directions – preheat oven to 350. melt chips and butter for 45 seconds to 1 minute in microwave. Stir smooth. Blend in sugar. Mix eggs in well. Add vanilla. Fold in flour and baking soda. Grease 2 – 8 inch square or 2 standard round cake pans. Divide dough equally in the two pans. Bake 20 -30 minutes (toothpick inserted in center basically comes out clean). Cool.
Place 1 brownie layer on plate
Filling ingredients – 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 1 – 15.25 oz funfetti cake mix (or another flavor if you want), 1/2 cup + 3 tbs flour, 3-6 tbs milk or heavy cream
Directions – melt butter. Mix in sugar. Stir in vanilla. Add cake mix and flour. Blend in milk (may need more to thin it out, if you prefer).
Spread half in top of brownie layer on plate.
Top with 2nd brownie layer.
Ganache – 1 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
Hesat cream and chips 1 minute in microwave. Stir smooth. Add powdered sugar. Pour on top brownie layer
