Fudge Brownies

This brownie recipe is a definite keeper in my book  They are rich and gooey and oh so good.  I added ganache to mine because who doesn't like a little ganache.

Fudge Brownies
from Kelsey's Kitchen

1 cup butter, melted
3 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.  Combine the melted butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl.  Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each, until thoroughly blended.

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and salt.  Gradually stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture until blended.  Stir in the chocolate morsels.  Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish.

Bake in preheated oven until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.  Remove, and cool on wire rack before cutting.

Chocolate Ganache
1 cup heavy cream
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat cream in double boiler until just before it boils.  Take off heat and add vanilla and chocolate.  Stir with wire whisk until smooth.  Pour over baked brownies and serve.
