CHOCOLATE-COVERED STRAWBERRY BROWNIES
This month is Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re spending the day with someone or just yourself, this tasty treat will make anyone’s day a little sweeter.
1 box brownie mix plus ingredients called for on box
1 1/2 cup halved strawberries
2 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Preheat oven to 350° and line an 8″-x-8″ pan with parchment paper.
- Prepare brownie batter according to package instructions. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out with only a few moist crumbs, 25 to 30 minutes.
- Let cool completely in pan, then top with strawberries.
- Place chocolate chips in a medium, heatproof bowl and set aside. Heat heavy cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. When bubbles begin to break the surface around the edges of the pan, turn off the heat. Pour the hot cream over chocolate chips. Let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk constantly until the sauce is smooth. Pour over the strawberry layer.
- Refrigerate brownies until the ganache has set, about 15 minutes. Slice into squares and serve cold.
