Fudge Brownies with Chocolate Ganache – my favorite brownie base, topped with easy ganache and decorated Valentine’s Day style!
It’s February!!! Yay! Can I get a high five for that! I am excited that it’s February for two reasons: it should be the last cold month for us, here in Kansas and… it’s a month filled with chocolate treats! We are celebrating love with chocolate – that’s definitely something to be happy about.
When you are thinking chocolate, brownies definitely come to mind. Fudge brownies at that. How about we top them with a ganache and Hershey’s® chocolate hearts? Add some pink sprinkles just for fun!
I used my favorite brownie base, made with Hershey’s® cocoa powder, that always comes out super fudgy. This recipe has yet to fail me. It’s very easy to make, one bowl and a whisk is all you need.
I made a very simple ganache and poured it over the top. It made for a perfect base for the sprinkles and chocolate hearts. I used Hershey’s® Special Dark chocolate, one of my serious weaknesses. I have several bars of it in my pantry.
I always look forward to buying a few bags of Hershey’s® chocolate hearts when Valentine’s Day rolls around. They are perfect for those moments when a chocolate craving hits me or as a toppers for my treats!
I was just going to slice the brownies into squares as usual. But then I saw my new heart cookie cutter and decided to make a special heart brownie for my Hubby. 🙂 I love the chocolate hearts set in the ganache!
