Death By Chocolate 3 Layer Brownies Recipe @pinch

Whoa... this is a chocolate lover's dream dessert recipe! The base is a tender, gooey brownie full of extra chocolate. The center layer has a creamy, almost mousse havelike, texture. Then, they are topped with a fudgy chocolate ganache that sends these over the top. Have a glass of milk handy to wash 'em down. They are rich and fantastic! I find everyone is up for chocolate. I have tried making the middle layer with different flavors of instant pudding, but chocolate always the favorite, and what better way to go than death by chocolate!

  • 12 ounce(s) bag of chocolate chips (2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoon(s) pure vanilla extract
Intructions :
  • Preheat oven to 350. Butter 9x13 pan, I use a 10x10 pan if you have one it works great
  • Mix brownie according to package directions. Then fold in mini chocolate chips
  • Bake according to package directions. Once baked cool completely
  • Middle Layer: In mixing bowl combine butter, powdered sugar, heavy cream, pudding mix, and cocoa powder. Beat with whip beater till light and creamy
  • Spread evenly on the cooled brownie and place in fridge while you make the top layer
  • Top Ganache Layer: Place chocolate chips in a glass bowl and set aside
  • In a small saucepan bring heavy cream to a boil. Pour cream over the chocolate chips
  • Cover the bowl and let sit for 10 minutes
  • Then using a wire whisk, whip together the chocolate and cream till smooth and creamy, it will have a satiny looking finish. Whisk in vanilla extract
  • Then pour over the top of the brownie spread to smooth. Return the brownies to the fridge and chill at least 2 hours before cutting and serving
  • Cut brownies into 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 square pieces and serve. They are quite rich so smaller pieces are better. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Remove from the fridge at least a half-hour before serving. Break out the coffee and enjoy them together!
