Dark Chocolate Ganache Brownie Cakes

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 35 mins
Cool time 1 hr

15 servings

An indulgent chocolate brownie covered in rich chocolate ganache takes dessert to a new level.


  • 1 2/3 cups (10 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2-inch round metal cookie cutter
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (6 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Morsels

How to Make It

  1. HEAT morsels, sugar, butter and water in medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate and butter are melted.  Remove from heat.  Stir in eggs, one at a time, until blended.  Stir in vanilla extract.  Add flour and salt; stir well.  Pour into prepared baking pan.

  2. BAKE for 30 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out slightly sticky. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.  Holding sides of foil, lift brownie from pan to cutting board.  Carefully remove foil and return brownie to board.  Cut away 1/4-inch from each side. Cut out 15 cakes with cookie cutter, twisting gently to remove.  For easier cutting, cutter can be wiped clean and/or greased lightly between cuttings.  Scraps can be saved for another use, such as an ice cream topping, milkshakes or a snack.   Serve cakes with Dark Chocolate Ganache.
