So, the sweet pregnancy cravings haven’t let up, and I’m going to make a confession: I have let them get the best of me. My pants are realllly starting to feel the sugar intake, but this momma isn’t going to get upset over a few pounds. Not during pregnancy.
I was terrified of gaining weight at the beginning of this pregnancy. In fact, I was even trying to limit my calorie intake far greater than I should have. I know, I deserve to have a few rotten tomatoes thrown at me–I’ve been watching too much Vikings. But, in the last month or two, I have been a lot more lenient with myself. I still do my best to get all of my protein and greens, but I don’t deny myself of things I want.
Obviously, with all the desserts I’ve posted recently: No-Bake Cheesecake Balls, Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches, Edible Cake Batter Balls, etc. I’m sure you get the point. I have a serious sweet tooth.
These brownies, which I titled Death by Chocolate Brownies, are crazy chocolatey! I cut myself a pretty decent size square and was taken back by how rich and fudgy these are. One was certainly enough to hold me over for a full day.
I started by melting semi-sweet chocolate chips and butter in a small saucepan. Then I transferred the chocolate sauce to a large bowl and then whisked in the eggs, vanilla, and milk. I combine all my dry ingredients in a small bowl with a fork and then slowly incorporated them into the chocolate and egg mixture. The batter was thick and gooey, and I knew I was onto something amazing.
Since we went camping last weekend, I had leftover Hershey Bars and decided to break 3 of them up and layer the pieces in the middle of the brownie batter. After that, I popped them in the oven for 35 minutes at 350ºF, made the ganache, and patiently waited for my creation.
Can you believe I have never made ganache before this? Whoever forgot to tell me about this stuff is in need of a little chit-chat. It’s delicious!
Between the frosting, the milk chocolate center, and the fudgy brownie base, these came out much more decadent than I could have ever expected. But if I know some of my good friends and family, as well as my readers like I think I do, this recipe will blow your mind, and you will forced by the powers of Chocolate to make this time and time again,
