Ed's Best "Got Milk?" BrowniesThis is a “break glass in case of emergency” brownie recipe for those times when you need a chocolate fix quickly. You’ll easily find all of these ingredients in your home pantry or refrigerator and you’ll never need to buy one of those store-bought mixes again. The best part is that it’s all natural.

Makes about 10 brownies


6 Tablespoons Butter + 1 Tablespoon (For Pan Prep)

1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Ganache (see Dark Chocolate Ganache recipe below)

2 Large Eggs, Beaten

1 Cup Granulated Sugar

3/4 Cup All-purpose Flour

1/2 Cup Crushed Pecans or Walnuts

1/3 Cup Sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

2. Butter the baking pan.

3. Melt the butter and the ganache in a microwave oven or in a bowl over hot water; allow the melted chocolate to cool slightly.

4. Add the eggs then the sugar and the flour. Using a wooden spoon, mix the ingredients together quickly, being careful not to over mix.

5. Add the nuts.

6. Pour the batter into the baking pan, sprinkle the remaining 1/3 cup sugar on top, and bake for about 30 minutes. The brownies will be crisp and light brown on the top.

7. Allow the brownies to cool on a wire rack and then cut into squares.

8. Serve warm with White Chocolate Ice Cream or White Chocolate Whipped Cream and Hot Fudge Sauce.
