Deliciously decadent Truffle Brownies with a rich ganache topping, a fudgey chocolatey base and toasted hazelnuts. The perfect recipe to elevate your homemade brownies!
If you know me, you know I LOVE a good brownie! I’m always researching for new recipes and tried these at a local bakery a few weeks ago, so had to give them a shot.
I like to think of Truffle Brownies simply as an elevated version of your regular homemade brownies. No fancy ingredients, just hazelnuts and a decadent ganache on top. As always, the ganache does it for me. It’s insanely delicious!
HOW TO MAKE TRUFFLE BROWNIES
This is a pretty simple recipe, but it does require some cooling time. Follow the instructions for the brownie batter, melt the butter and chocolate, whisk the sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt. Add the chocolate mixture to the sugar mixture. Fold in the remaining ingredients and bake for about 30 minutes. Don’t overcook!
For the ganache, I used 2 types of chocolate – a darker one and a semisweet one. You can kind of see the different color swirls, but it was mostly a decision to add more depth to the ganache as opposed to a styling choice.
Sometimes semisweet chocolate still tastes a little too sweet for me. And, dark chocolate isn’t everyone’s favorite, so a combination of the two turned out great. Of course, feel free to use whatever chocolate you have on hand!
This is where it gets tricky. You have to cool the brownies 100% before adding the ganache. I’d suggest making them the day before, as the ganache requires at least 4 hours to set at room temperature. Other than that, it’s pretty easy!
I’m so happy you’re making one of my recipes, and would love to see how it turns out! Share it on instagram using #yogaofcooking so I can see it – it always makes my day!
