Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies with Dark Chocolate Ganache

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies have now become one of my go to quick fix desserts. But this week, I took them to another level entirely – Dark Chocolate Ganache.

Oh yes I did.

And they are even better than I imagined.

It was actually Little Buddy’s idea to make the ganache dark chocolate. I had plenty of milk chocolate on hand and was ready to get the ganache started when he specifically asked if I’d make it dark chocolate. Surprisingly, he’s preferred dark chocolate since he was four years old. He has a sophisticated palate when it comes to some things. Other things – not so much.

I looked for dark chocolate and sadly had to tell him we didn’t have any to use in the ganache. “Wait just a second, Mama. I think I may have something.”

He quickly returned to the kitchen with this.

His Dove dark chocolate bunny from Easter. Our family knows how much he loves dark chocolate and he lucked up with five of these this past Easter. I had no idea he’d stashed one. But, he was happy enough to contribute this guy to the brownies.

He stood close as we gave it a quick chop.

He hovered even closer to the bowl as we waited for the cream to warm.

I couldn’t tell what he was thinking when we had to wait the five minutes for the warm milk and chocolate to sit.

And then we began to use the whisk and stir the milk and chocolate together.

He sighed a big sigh of relief when the ganache finally came together. And was even happier when he saw it on top of his favorite brownies.

I have to admit, I’m glad he had stashed that bunny!

      It was a sure stroke of luck that he sacrificed that bunny. I haven’t found any more stashes though.

    I couldn’t find a recipe on here,but my question is, have you made homemade whoopie pies? If so, what is the trick to keep the filling from oozing out? Or do I need to just deal with it and scrape excess filling off when done? Mine were perfect til I went back and checked and they had oozed :(
