Blue Ribbon Brownies

I found this on bakerella and it looked so good that I gave it a try. Very delicious! These pictures are copied from her site - but I have to say that mine looked just as yummy.

Make one brownie mix according to directions and pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan. (She suggests Betty Crocker's Supreme Brownie mix). And then mix one Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie mix according to the directions and drop by rounded tablespoons into the brownie batter. You'll want to press the dough down lightly. Bake for 35minutes (until done - cookie dough will be golden) in a 350 degree preheated oven. When they're done, take them out and let them cool completely for one hour.

Then frost them with chocolate ganache. (Recipe below) Pour it on top and spread it out evenly. Now, this is the hardest step. Leave it alone. That's right, you'll want to let the ganache set up. It will be tough, but you can do it.

Chocolate Ganache
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 6 Tbsp butter

In a small saucepan, heat cream and butter until just before the boiling stage.
Pour over the chocolate morsels.
Let stand about 20 seconds and stir until smooth.
Pour over brownies and let set before cutting.

This recipe was originally adapted from a Betty Crocker recipe.
