Brownies with White Chocolate Glaze

December 17, 2016

The other night my hubby and I were up late studying for our final exams, and we both had a craving for something sweet and delicious. Luckily, I had some leftover white chocolate in my fridge leftover from making Red Velvet Truffles and so I decided to make brownies with a decadent twist. My hubby and I used a family recipe. I usually find brownies too rich and to be honest often they make me feel a bit sick to the stomach, but not these darlings. These are moist and gooey and chocolately. These are perfect with a cold glass of milk in my hubby’s case, or in my case a hot cup of orange pekoe tea. I shared a picture of these on instagram which inspired me to quickly write up this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz chocolate (I used a mix of baking chocolate I had leftover and chocolate chips)
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Grease 9×13 dish
  3. Melt 6oz of chocolate and butter over a pot of simmering water in a heat proof dish.
  4. While chocolate is melting mix together sugar, salt and flour.
  5. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly and add the dry ingredients. Once the dry ingredients are incorporated add eggs one at a time. Adding the next one once the previous is fully incorporated. Once the eggs are incorporated add the vanilla.
  6. Add a pinch or two of flour to chocolate chips, and mix into brownie batter. This will prevent the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom of the dish and distribute evenly. I learnt this tip from the Barefoot Contessa.
  7. Pour brownie batter into greased 9×13 pan, and hit on the counter to let any extra air bubbles escape.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  9. While the brownies are baking melt white chocolate over simmering water in heat proof dish. Once melted, slowly add a bit of cream off the heat to thin out the mixture so it is easier to pour.
  10. Pour white chocolate over brownies and spread out evenly. I didn’t wait until the brownies cooled completely so when I spread out the white chocolate glaze it added some crumbs to the glaze, if you wait until the brownies are cooled this shouldn’t be a problem.
  11. ENJOY 🙂
