These brownies have mascarpone cheese in it. How wonderful . . . and expensive, too! A great twist on brownies, they are so decadent, you won't believe your taste buds!

This is one of those awesome desserts that you can have just a bite of and feel satisfied. With an intensely dark chocolate flavor, they are practically fudge-like in consistency. So rich, so creamy, so GOOD! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make CHOCOLATE MASCARPONE BROWNIES

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prep 8-inch glass cake pan.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter, bring it to just below a boil, pour the hot butter over the chocolate and let stand for about 30 seconds,then stir till the chocolate is completely melted.
  3. Sift in the sugar and the cocoa powder.
  4. With a wooden spoon, beat in the mascarpone, eggs and vanilla, mix till smooth.
  5. Gently fold the flour and salt into the batter.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.
  7. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, do a toothpick test and if it comes out clean then it's done.
  8. Remove the pan from the oven onto a wire rack to cool.
  9. Place chocolate in a mixing bowl. In a small saucepan, bring the cream and butter to just below a boil over medium heat.
  10. Pour the hot cream-butter mixture over the chocolate, let stand for 30 seconds, then stir till smooth.
  11. Ganache is now ready to spread over the brownies.
  12. Do not cut the brownies till the ganache is set. It's probably best to refrigerate the brownies first.
