The Baked Brownie – topped with milk chocolate ganache


This is treat #2 for Bills victory Monday. A stressful game, but I had to behave for a half hour and not use bad words because we were have our internet changed and the tech was in our house during the first half. I made up for that lack of swearing on the second half. A lot of stress and frustration. But they won, and that is all that counts. This treat is the Baked Brownie.. I think I found it reading something online regarding Oprah a long time ago. I used dark chocolate chips, but you can use semisweet if you want. I added some chocolate chips to the batter and topped them with milk chocolate ganache!

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter
  • Just under 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 1 /2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tsp chocolate extract
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 tbs baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 350 for 20 minutes. Line an 8-8 pan with tin foil and spray with baking spray. In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter with just under 2 cups dark chocolate chips in 30 second intervals until you can stir smooth. Add sugar. Mix in eggs, one at a time, and extract. Fold in flour, baking cocoa ans salt. Add 1 cups chips. Spread into prepared pan. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few crumbs. Sprinkle hot brownies with powdered sugar. Cool completely. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave 1/3 cup heavy cream for one minute. Add 1 cup milk chocolate chips. Stir until completely blended. Let sit at least 20 minutes and then frost brownies. Store in covered container.

Do brownies need frosting? Why yes!

  1. Holy mackerel – those look glorious! Nearly as glorious as tiny-but-mighty Cole Beasley’s trick rainbow pass for an epic Bills TD, or my beloved 49ers inexplicably beating the 1st place Rams for the 2nd time this season in nerve-wracking fashion. . .
    So much for which to be thankful. Especially Robbie Gould! 🏈💛❤️
