Chocolate Brownies with White Chocolate Buttercream
























What's better than a decadent and delightful chocolate fudge-like brownie? That's easy...a decadent and delightful chocolate fudge-like brownie with white chocolate buttercream frosting and a cherry on top!

Chocolate Brownies with White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

1/2 cup butter, cut into small pieces
3 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1-1/2 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt.
3/4 cup all purpose flour
 

 Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper and then spray the paper with non-stick spray. I like to leave excess paper hanging over the ends so they are easy to lift out of the paper after baking.

Stir the butter and chocolate in a large heavy saucepan over very low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat and whisk in the sugar, and then the eggs, 1 at a time. Add the vanilla, and salt and stir. Next add the flour a little at a time and stir to blend evenly. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake brownies about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean with just a little batter attached. Remove brownies using parchment paper on ends to life and allow to cool completely on rack. Using a biscuit cutter or any large cookie cutter, press firmly into the cooled brownie.

White Chocolate Buttercream

1/2 cup Butter, room temperature
2 1/2 cups confectioners (powdered) Sugar
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
4 oz White Chocolate, chopped and melted
2 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream

Using a mixer, first cream butter until soft and fluffy. Then mix in vanilla. Slowly add the powdered sugar a little at a time and mix well before adding more. Next mix in the melted white until incorporated. Finally add in the cream a little at a time and mix until frosting is at your desired consistency. Using a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped or a piping bag, pipe on incing to cover brownie and add a cherry on top!
