Black Widow Brownies with Ganache - Jazzing up a box mix.
BlackWidow Brownines - Simple steps for jazzing up a box mix. Behold, my favorite boxed brownie mix:
Ghiradelli Double Chocolate is so delicious. Here's how I make it even better -
I use melted butter instead of the oil called for on the box.
Then I add Saigon Cinnamon, which is stronger than regular cinnamon along with cayene pepper.
A teaspoon of cinnamon and a 1/4 tsp of cayenne.
Start with six ounces (3/4 cup) heavy cream. I want you to warm that in the microwave for about a minute until it gets very warm. If a minute doesn't do it add another minute to it. Then I want you to add this:
Soon it will look like this: a beautiful satiny chocolate concoction. You can make however much you want. Just make sure you have equal parts chocolate and equal parts cream. You can also add vanilla or almond extract to the cream before you heat it for extra flavor. Now comes the fun part.
Spoon the luxurious liquid onto the brownies, filling to the top of the cupcake wrapper. That's why we left the room.
See how pretty? Now put these babies in the fridge to set up, cause we are going to decorate.
So I cut an hourglass shape our of parchment paper.
All in all, a great day and a delicious dessert.
