Chocolate Ganache Brownies

I’ll never forgot the first time I made Chocolate Ganache. I thought, these brownies are good … but they could be great.  You know what would make them great?  Chocolate Ganache.

“Ganache” sounds like such a fancy-schmancy word .. one of those words where it’s fun to say it with a fake accent.  I am here to tell you that it’s seriously simple to make, but totally ramps up your brownie game.  Especially for those people who are serious about their chocolate.  I mean brownies in their own right?  DELICIOUS.  Brownies with a heaping of this melted chocolate lusciousness?


We are celebrating #Choctoberfest2017  — It’s sponsored by Imperial Sugar, and it’s a group of over 70 bloggers that have gotten together and vowed to share everything chocolatey good over the course of one week.  Imperial Sugar is our Gold Sponsor, imagine my surprise when I came home to 88 POUNDS of sugar on my porch!  Granulated sugar, brown sugar and confectioner’s sugar.  Let the holiday baking begin!  I never had to purchase any sugar last year for my holiday baking, I am certain this year will be the same! Plus — I was able to donate sugar to our local Chamber of Commerce for their food pantry.  We will be doing that again this year, as well.   So, THANK  YOU, Imperial Sugar for your generosity.  It’s greatly appreciated.

The brownie recipe starts with mixing your dry ingredients together, flour, Imperial sugar, salt, baking powder, espresso powder and Rodelle Dutch Cocoa Powder.

Rodelle Baking Cocoa is European Dutch-processed for rich flavor and appearance. Their cocoa contains one of the highest levels of cocoa butter on the market, ensuring superior chocolate flavor. Rodelle was kind enough to send me this canister of cocoa that I used not only in these brownies, but in the Chocolate Pancakes I made to share with you on Friday. (secret’s out!)

Mix your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients until smooth.  Pour into a 9×13 inch baking dish and bake.  Cool before frosting with the Chocolate Ganache.

  1. seriously? Youre killing me. These are just screaming make me make me eat me eat me! They look amazing and I cant wait to try them!

  2. These brownies are definitely over-the-top delicious, so decadent and chocolatey and that ganache? Ooooh! Love that you are able to donate some of the sugar too, that’s awesome!

  3. Chocolate over chocolate is always a good thing. I love ganache and brownies are my favorite. I will be making this recipe to send to my husband’s office – well if I don’t eat them all first!

  4. Very versatile. I only had two eggs but that made it better. I used an 11×7(?) Pan and it was perfect for me. 9×13 would’ve made them too thin. Also I feel for me that 2 cups of sugar would be too too sweet. I prefer dark chocolate so I cut the sugar to 1 and a scant half. Still too sweet but that’s just preference. Texture wise was perfect. Thank you!
