Decadently Delicious Mousse Brownies

mousse brownies

The first time I made this recipe it was 2008, the year I started the blog.  The picture was so terrible and the recipe was so good, I decided to do it over again.  I have never made a brownie so decadently rich and delicious.  This recipe came from a blog called Recipediva.   She says this brownie recipe has been around for 25 years.  I want to know where it’s been hiding!!

We start by greasing a 13×9 in pan and preheating your oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium saucepan combine the butter and chocolate chips.

Stir until the butter and chips are melted together.  Let this cool slightly

Here comes the mousse part…. In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine the cream and 6 ounces of chocolate chips.  Stir until the chips melt into the cream.  Cool slightly.  At this point the recipe says to add 3 eggs, then add the sugar.  I added the sugar first so the mixture went down in temperature before I added the eggs.  I didn’t want scrabbled eggs in my mousse brownie.  Spread the mousse topping over the brownie batter and bake for 45 minutes in your preheated oven.  Do not UNDERBAKE.  Bake until the top springs back when you touch it lightly.  Let cool for 2 hours ( you know I didn’t wait that long) then refrigerate.  Best eaten at room temperature.

This brownie produces a nice thick chewy outer edge with a smooth creamy chocolatey middle.  Like eating a melted candy bar.  So rich, so creamy, it’s a wonderful combination of textures and flavor.  Enjoy!
