Chocolate Ganache Brownie Wedges

Chocolate Ganache Brownie Wedges

Calling all chocolate lovers!  These will be your favorite brownies.... loaded with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Not for the faint of heart!   these brownies will adore these Chocolate Ganache Brownies. There’s so much chocolate going on here!
1 cup bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch round cake or pie pan then line it with parchment paper so that the paper overhangs by a few inches.

Place the chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave at half power in 30-second increments until the butter is melted and the chocolate melts when stirred. Stir until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.

Mix the sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well-blended. Add the chocolate-butter mixture, and mix until smooth. Add the flour and salt, and mix just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake 35-40 minutes, or until a pick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Run a knife along the non-lined sides of the pan. Cool in pan on wire rack.

Using the overhanging parchment paper, lift the cooled brownies out of the pan and onto a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut into bars.

4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
4 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
chopped walnuts, optional

Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Set aside. Place the cream and butter in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove the cream from the heat and pour over the chocolate. Let sit for 5 minutes. Then stir until smooth.

Dip the top of each brownie into the ganache. If desired, sprinkle walnuts on top of each brownie. Set on a wire rack to allow the ganache to set.
