Someone in the house, ahem, Glenn, has been whining for a week now about not having any chocolate in the house. Boohoo. I have been busy baking things with fruit. That is why these are now called As You Wish Brownies. I only wanted to please the one I loved. Gotta love Princess Bride. Whatever.
Anyway, the Fresh & Easy by our house FINALLY opened yesterday so of course we had to stop by. It was so packed! It was awesome though, I love that store, and I also got mucho compliments on my super cool recycled grocery bag totes.
The main point about the F&E side story is that I found Mascarpone cheese there. I can't find it anywhere, maybe I am looking in the wrong places, but I found it anyway. I was so excited I squealed a bit and I did a mini dance in the aisle. Why mascarpone cheese you ask? Well, I came across this recipe a while ago and it looks SOOO heavenly. I finally made it last night. The results? Absolutely sinful. These brownies are so thick that when you add the layer of ganache, they will come all the way to the top of a square Pyrex pan. They are so thick and rich and fudgy and... oh I could go on and on. Just make them. I promise you won't be disappointed.
By the way, I only have one picture because I just couldn't stare at it without digging in.
