Sheet Pan Brownies

I supersized a brownie recipe… So instead of using an 8×8 pan, I used a 12×18 pan.  The more brownies, the better, right?  I used bittersweet chocolate because I feel it makes a more fudgy brownie, but you can use semisweet chips if you want to.  I also topped these with a ganache and some chopped up candy – the king sizes Reese’s with Reese’s pieces inside,courtesy of my coworker,Michelle Smallmon, Snickers and krackel bars.  I would have made a baking video of these but my allergies make me sound like a mix of Marge Simpson and Rudolph after his father covered his nose.  So just a blog today.
