Chocolate Candy Brownies

This past week we had some friends over for a "Fondue and Good Caffeine" get-together. We made a few different savoury appetizers and, since one of our guests especially likes chocolate, I made something that packed a super chocolate punch - Chocolate Candy Brownies. With real chocolate in the mix and topped with a chocolate ganache, I knew they would be perfect. They're called 'candy' due to the fact that they are supposed to be sprinkled with chopped chocolate bars such as Rolos or Maltesers. Alas, I didn't have enough for sprinkling so each square got a small chunk of Skor.

The brownie bakes up dark and thick. After 25 minutes you have a moist and chewy slab just waiting to be slathered in rich chocolate. I was pretty happy with how they turned out as I wasn't giving them my 100% attention. The ganache set up nicely and they sliced like a dream. They're perfect for those who like a solid brownie - these are not cakey. If you don't want to do ganache, chocolate frosting would be fine and they would also make an excellent base for a brownie sundae.

So as this year comes to a close, I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! Thank you for all your support and feedback and I'll see you in 2007!
