Description

A silky Cabernet ganache is swirled throughout chocolate brownies!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BROWNIES:
  • ¾ cups Unsalted Butter
  • 4 ounces, weight Unsweetened Chocolate, Chopped
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Real Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cups Cabernet Sauvignon Wine
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • FOR THE CABERNET GANACHE:
  • ¾ cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Cabernet Sauvignon Wine

Preparation

For the brownies:
Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Line a 13×9 baking dish with parchment paper and grease with either butter or your Misto sprayer and set aside.

In a medium size sauce pan over low heat, melt butter and chopped unsweetened chocolate. Once the chocolate has melted and is smooth, add in the sugar. Add in the eggs, whisking after each addition. Stir in vanilla and the Cabernet.

In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Pour the chocolate/sugar mixture into the bowl; stir until all the ingredients are incorporated and set aside.

For the ganache:
In a small sauce pan combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips, butter and Cabernet. Heat over low and stir constantly until smooth and silky.

Spread 2/3 of the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Spoon the wine-ganache over top. Pour remaining 1/3 batter over the ganache and spread with a knife or offset spatula.

With a sharp knife, make a couple zig-zags through the brownies to create a swirl pattern, then place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes (in my oven it was more like 25 minutes so watch carefully!).

Let cool completely before removing the brownies.

Cut and serve and enjoy!

I have made these a few times and have just now gotten around to reviewing them. By far the best brownie recipe I’ve ever made! Not overly sweet, more of a sophisticated taste. And they stay moist for up to a week! Fantastic recipe–this is my go-to for brownies!
