Here is the cast of tonights show. The chocolate chips actually go with the chocolate ganache cast members, but he wanted to be in the picture so I let him.
Mix up the brownie mix and put it into a well-sprayed 9X13 pan. Mix up the cookies and by spoonful (or with your hand- like me) plop them into the brownie mix however you want. I'm OCD so they are perfectly symmetrical. Be SPONTANEOUS if you choose.
Bake for 30-45 min. at 350, or a little less if you have an impatient oven who cooks everything really fast.
For the chocolate ganache:
1 12 oz. pkg of chocolate chips
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
6 Tbsp butter
In a saucepan heat the butter and cream together until right before it starts to boil. Add the chocolate chips and stir until it looks smooth and dark.
Pour the ganache over the top and follow the next step VERY CLOSELY. You must must let it sit and cool. I know it's an almost impossible task and your tastebuds might start jumping off your tongue, but trust me. Let it cool.
If you're like me and have a roommate who is known for "nibbling" and "testing" treats, then put up a nice sign like I did. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
