Guest Blogger/Truffle Brownies
Hi Buttercream Bakehouse readers! I’m Gina from Kleinworth & Co. where I share favorite family recipes, projects with my kids, photography tips & a little bit of family life.
I’m so excited to be here today sharing a decadent little goodie that is always a hit.
I am one of those that likes a fudgy brownie. I know brownie lovers throughout the world usually fall in one of two camps- fudge like brownies or cake like brownies. I’m in the fudge camp- the gooey-er the better for me. AND when it comes to my treats – more is more for me as well. I like to push the envelope & top with a little extra to make it better. So this time I decided to take my favorite truffle recipe & top it on my brownies for an extra rich & yummy Truffle Brownies dessert.
I sent most of these to the firehouse with the hubs. His guys had them gone in record time.
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp dutch process cocoa powder
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 pkg (8 ounces) cream cheese – room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl – whisk together the eggs & sugar
Add in flour & cocoa powder – whisk until mostly combined
In separate bowl combine butter & chocolate chips & microwave for 30-60 seconds until butter is melted.
Whisk butter & chocolate mixture until combined & smooth
Add to large bowl & mix well
Transfer to parchment lined 9×9 pan
Bake about 25 minutes or until the top is set & shiny
Remove & allow to cool while you make the truffle topping.
For the truffle topping-
Place your cream cheese in mixer bowl & beat until creamy
In double boiler- melt your chocolate chips
Slowly add your melted chocolate to your cream cheese & beat until completely combined- scrape down bowl frequently
Once thoroughly mixed- transfer to top of brownies & spread into an even layer
Place in refrigerator to completely cool before cutting.
Store in airtight container in refrigerator
That’s it – so simple & AMAZING!!
