Mississippi Mud Brownies
Are you also a foodaholic. Welcome this delicious recipe that I could not resist peeking at from the chef at The Girl Who Ate Everything. This recipe for Mississippi Mud Brownies has a thick topping of marshmallows and a creamy chocolate ganache that may have your neighbors knocking. As described, the base is buttery and rich in chocolate. The ganache is a thick and creamy consistency.
How to Make Ganache (Stove Top Method)
To make a nice ganache the process involves chopping the chocolate into fine pieces and if you are using the stove top method, place them in a chocolate melter or the top of a double boiler and set aside. In a small pot, bring the heavy cream to a boil over medium to high heat. Pour the boiling cream over the finely chopped chocolate. Add a pinch of salt.
Leave to sit for 10 minutes and do not stir. Stirring will cool the ganache too quickly and make it grainy. After 10 minutes, stir with a whisk until the ganache is nice and creamy. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides to be sure the chocolate is off the bottom of the pot. The ganache is ready to use. *Note: To get a good rich flavored ganache choose a good quality dark chocolate.
The recipe at the Girl Who At Everything will explain the ganache making in a microwave. A great tip when you actually get your brownie batter prepared and ready to pour into the pan, is to line your pan with greased aluminum foil, so that when you it is all said and done and you are ready to eat your Mississippi Mud Brownies, you can simply pull the whole batch out of the tray, remove the foil and then cut the brownies into square.
