rich chocolatey brownies with dark chocolate ganache

3:47 PM

You guys!!!!!!!! I have SUCH exciting news!!!!!! After years and years of searching, I have finally found the perfect brownie recipe! Yes. I said it. Perfect. They have the perfect texture (not too cakey, not too fudgy) and the perfect taste (chocolately and rich). 

I found the recipe somewhere on allrecipes.com (can't remember the exact link because it was a while ago) but I did change up the recipe quite a bit. I added melted bittersweet chocolate to the recipe. I just feel like it gives the brownies more of a chocolate flavor and a nicer texture. I also added a ganache topping. It makes the brownies very fancy and rich. I have made the brownies without the ganache and they were still very delicious. So if you don't like ganache (if such a person exists...) you can just skip it entirely or use store bought white or chocolate frosting.

I have made these brownies several times and each time I get rave reviews, especially from my picky little brother--so you know they're good. They are also very easy to make. I use only one bowl :) So clean up is awesome!!



(I made these brownies a few months ago and surprised/announced to my friends about my engagement! And yes, if you haven't already heard, I'm engaged!! Getting married on June 28th, 2014) <3

Anywho, I really hope you guys enjoy the recipe :) These really are fantastic!
