Whopper Brownies


whopper – noun; informal -something that is very large and impressive.

synonyms: giant, monster, colossus, mammoth, jumbo

These brownies are Whopper Brownies, not because of their size, although you could cut them into mammoth squares, in which case they would then become Double Whopper Brownies, but because of the addition of Whoppers.

What is a “Whopper” you ask.  It is a small or large smooth chocolate coated ball of yummy sweet malted goodness…I love malted milk balls and adding them into brownie batter is genius and impressive.  I guess these brownies are “Whoppers” in more ways than one. image

Whopper Brownies

Preheat oven to 325F.  Foil line and spray a 11×13-inch pan.

In a small bowl whisk together and set aside:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup Ghiradelli Sweet Ground Chocolate

1/2 teaspoon salt

imageIn a large saucepan over a low heat stir until smooth:

3/4 cup butter

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped

Add in to saucepan and whisk together:

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

Remove saucepan from heat and stir in the dry ingredients and fold in 1 cup of roughly chopped malted milk balls.

Bake the 11 x 13-inch pan for about 25-30 minutes.  Mixture will get firm around edges and crackle on top. You want a couple of crumbs to stick to the toothpick when testing. If using a smaller pan, such as a 9×9-inch you will need to add on to your baking time.

These are gooey, chocolaty, superb, delicious and just plain Mmmmmm.

 

Serve with a scoop of ice cream and a whopper on top for a decadent dessert!  I think it would be just sweet enuf.
