Chocolate Mousse Brownies

So... The pictures in this blog post kind of suck. And the lighting wasn't perfect. And I rushed to get enough shots before I flew out the door to work.

But trust me on this, you NEED to make this recipe. If you like chocolate, especially the fudgy, rich and delicious kind, you will die for these brownies.

I used a snack size (that fits an 8x8 inch pan) of brownie mix for this, and it was perfect. If you want to go forward with making this recipe with your favorite brownie recipe though, or a full size box of brownies, go for it!

More power to ya, girlfriend! (Or boyfriend!)

You will need:
1 box of brownie mix
eggs, oil, and water required on the back of box
3 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 1/4 cups heavy cream, divided

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and generously grease a 9" square baking dish. Set aside.

Mix brownies according to the package instructions and pour batter into the bottom of your prepared dish. Set aside.

In a medium microwave safe bowl, place 3/4 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of chocolate chips. Microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted and smooth. Set aside.

In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, beat together the 3 eggs and 1/3 cup sugar until fluffy. Pour in melted chocolate mixture and beat until fully incorporated.

Gently pour chocolate mousse mixture over the top of the brownie batter and bake in your preheated oven for 45 minutes or until the top is set.

Cool brownies completely, about 1 hour.

In a microwave safe bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted and smooth.

Pour ganache over the top of your cooled brownie/mousse mixture and place in the fridge to set.

Remove from fridge, slice into 1 inch squares (trust me, they are rich) and enjoy this chocolate-y delight!

By the way, does fudgey have an "e" or not (fudgy)? No judgement if I spelled it wrong, ok?
