Made it for the chocolate lovers in my office a couple of years ago and they raved about it. It's simple, but looks elegant. I moved recently and misplaced my recipe, so was glad to be able to replace it.
These were great! I disagree with peeweemow, i think just a drizzle of the ganache wouldnt be enough!
this was sooo good. only thing i would change for next time....cause there WILL be a next time... is use a drizzle of the ganash top. the recipe makes it a little too rich. but all in all it was awsome.
Josie168....by all means....yes you can! These are awsome!
Could you use a boxed brownie mix as a base instead of making the bottom layer from scratch?
