Rich, decadent and oh-so-good, these moist chocolate flourless brownies topped with a layer of ganache will serve as the perfect treat after any meal.
- 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, divided
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, cut into pieces
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1/4 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa
- 4 large eggs
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup pecans, finely ground (optional)
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
PREHEAT oven to 300º F. Line 9-inch-square baking pan with foil.
Grease bottom and sides.
HEAT 1 1/2 cups morsels, butter and water in medium, heavy-duty saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until morsels and butter are melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in cocoa until smooth. Remove from heat.
BEAT eggs and sugar in medium mixer bowl until thick, about 4 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract. Fold 1/3 of egg mixture into chocolate mixture. Fold in remaining egg mixture, one half at a time, until thoroughly incorporated. Fold in pecans. Pour into prepared pan.
BAKE for 35 to 40 minutes or until risen in center and edges start to get firm and shiny (center may still move and appear underbaked). Cool completely in pan on wire rack (center may sink slightly). Cover; refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
PLACE cream in small, uncovered, microwave-safe dish. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 25 to 30 seconds. Add remaining 1/2 cup morsels. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes; stir until chocolate is melted.
SPREAD ganache over chilled brownie. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Using two opposite sides of foil, carefully lift the entire brownie out of the pan and place on cutting board. Carefully peel away foil from brownie. Cut into bars. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
Review This Recipe
Hands down, these are the best brownies I have ever made and absolutely the best I've ever had! My whole family loves them. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
lovely! who needs wheat with this combination of chocoate!
I made these brownies for Passover. They're good any time of year. They are rich, decadent, full of protein, limited sugar, and absolutely delicious. I would recommend doubling the recipe and using a larger pan.
All I can say is that these brownies are AMAZING! I made them for my brother who is gluten-free and everyone loved them....very rich and decadent and hard to put down. Glad I came across this recipe.
I'm trying to cut gluten out of my diet and was a touch wary of trying these. Oh my goodness, they are WONDERFUL! Don't let all the eggs scare you. It's not eggy at all. It's rich and fudge and more decadent than a flour- based brownie. I couldn't stop eating them!
The taste was rich, decadent chocolate..
Very easy to prepare, No mess when you use the foil as a liner.I let it cool over night in the freezer, took the brownies out in the morning and made the ganache..Rav Reviews from all my co workers! YUM!
This recipe is excellent. I cut them up into 2" pieces and put them in paper mini cupcake cups on a platter.They were a hit.
My niece can't have dairy products of any kind and I hope this works for her. These were really good..
Make them dairy-free too
Made them brownies and they were divine!! Although our family cannot have dairy products either, so instead of the ganache on the top, we did a dairy free icing. Try it for another flavor combo!!!
Dairy Free Icing
Yields 2 cups icing
½ cup shortening
1/8 cup dairy free creamer
¼ teaspoon vanilla
8 oz confectionary sugar
1/8- 1/4 cup water
A must try
If you like fudge, these are a must try brownie. Very good! Would be even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you don't mind the extra calories.
These brownies should be wonderful. I've been looking for something sweet now that my friends and I have started a gluten-free diet. Can't wait to try. I'll share with my friends and see what they think.
flourless chocolate brownies
except for the butter, these are fairly healthy! My whole family LOVED them (including me!!) Keeper recipe. I wonder if walnuts would work as well?
