Ganache Topped Truffle Brownies

5 from 2 reviews

A rich, decadent brownie recipe perfect for any occasion. Adapted from a Dan Smith and Stew McDonagh recipe





  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Grease 8-inch cake pan. Line with parchment and grease top of parchment. Or line the pan with non-stick foil. Set aside.
  2. Beat eggs and salt together with hand held electric mixer till frothy. Add sugar and beat till thick and pale yellow, 2 to 3 minutes. Add vanilla and beat till combined.
  3. Microwave butter and chocolate for about a minute. Stir and microwave in 15-30 second increments till chocolate is melted and smooth. With mixer running, slowly add melted chocolate to egg mixture. Add flour and beat till just incorporated, less than a minute. Scrape down sides as necessary.
  4. Bake 20 minutes till the center is barely set. Remove from oven and cool on rack. Make ganache.
  5. Melt chocolate and cream in microwave, about one minute on high. Stir till smooth and chips are completely melted. Pour on cooled brownies. Let chill in fridge.
  6. Before serving, place brownies in the freezer for at least 30 minutes for easier cutting. Let slices come to room temperature before serving.
