When I get a chocolate craving, this is my go to recipe. I love theses triple chocolate fudge brownies with semi sweet amd bitter chocolates, it really makes it a little less sweet. When I'm in the mood for chocolate overload, I add some ganache frosting on top.
The reason I usually keep them plain on top is they're easier to store away. I love the fact that I can make the frosting later and frost them just before serving.
For the diehard chocolate lovers out there!
I love the ganache, it is a bit sweeter but makes a great presentation for a dessert when serving guests. The recipe is a little work but very decadent.
I have had chocolate lovers swoon over this one. I make these often for group parties, the office workers and if I need a great recipe that is over the top for the chocolate lovers.
Once in awhile I add nuts but with all the allergies out there, if I am giving them away I omit them.
You can use any kind and add around 1/2 nuts chopped. Walnuts or macadamia nuts are my favorite in this recipe.
The ganache is easy, it's recipe I have used for more than 20 years. Heavy cream, chocolate and vanilla. Not much of a recipe but it creamy fudgy chocolate heaven!
Through the years of baking these I never leave out the secret ingredient, although it is optional (as it states below).
Some folks don't like that ingredient, I think it totally enhances the flavor. Check it out and see if you are a lover of my secret ingredient.
As I said before you don't have to use it, it is optional. When it comes to chocolate I think more is better!
The best part is when they come out of the oven warm. Try them with a scoop of ice cream, hot fudge ice cream sauce and sprinkle pistachios on top for a decadent dessert.
You can use these as a base dessert and make a chocolate warm brownie dessert that everyone will rave about.
This will always be your go to recipe.
Amazing how fast these fly off the plate. I haven't had a person yet not ask me to make these whenever there is a function, this is the most asked for recipe.
Especially at school bake sales, they sure go fast. I love making these for charity functions. They're not your average tasting brownie, they stand out among the rest.
One other thing, I have never doubled this recipe and I wouldn't try that since it may alter the results.
