Hey, hope everyone is having a great week. Looks like we are going to have another spill of horrible weather this weekend. Due to this it will be a great time to bake. This recipe is fun to do with your kids and "cute" dessert when entertaining. Enjoy!
Ingredients: Jelly roll pan (15x17)
Large "Easter Egg" cookie cutter
1 box Chewy fudge brownie mix
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup oil
4 oz. semi-sweet morsels
4 oz. chocolate bar
Pre-heat oven to 350*. Spray jelly roll pan w/non-stick cooking spray. In bowl blend brownie mix, eggs, water and oil. Mix well. Spread evenly in jelly roll pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes (ovens vary). Let cool. Cut brownies using egg shaped cookie cutter. Lay on cookie sheet lined w/waxed paper. Cover w/ cling wrap and freeze for 5 minutes or until firm. Remove, dip top side only into chocolate gnash (directions below). Lay back onto cookie sheet until chocolate sets up. Decorate with colored sprinkles or colored icing. They are adorable w/out the extra decor if you need to cut back on the sugar. Have fun!
Chocolate Gnash: Heat heavy cream in non-stick pan on low-medium heat until hot but not scolding. Stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Remove and pour into bowl with chopped chocolate bar and morsels. Cover for 3 minutes with plate on top. Whisk until well blended. Let stand until set.
TIP: You can remove 1/2 of gnash and place in small flat baking pan and place in freezer for a "quick set" method. Takes about 10-15 minutes to get a thick texture. Remove and dip brownies into.
