Brownies with Chocolate Ganache

How about a great brownie recipe for your Christmas baking?  These brownies are awesome covered with chocolate ganache.

Pretty and shiny and sprinkled for Christmas.

They make a great gift for neighbors or to share at work.

I really, really like brownies, and this is my "go to" recipe.  This recipe is quick and easy to make.  I don't mind a boxed brownie mix and have made brownies from a box more times than I can count, but if you want something a little special, or you like to bake from scratch, this recipe is perfect.


4 semi-sweet chocolate squares
1 stick margarine - melt with chocolate
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt

Bake at 350 degrees in an 8 x 8 baking pan lined with parchment paper for 20 to 25 minutes.  I baked my brownies for only 20 minutes.

Chocolate Ganache:

  Over low heat on stove, melt one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips with one-half cup of half and half, stirring pretty much constantly until melted and shiny.

Pour and spread the ganache over brownies.  (I refrigerated the brownies for a time before cutting them.  After cutting them, I placed them in a cookie tin and kept them in the refrigerator.)
