“Bro-nuts”

bronutsOnce upon a time, a young gentlemen in the workplace topped his donut with a brownie. He wondered aloud, “Why isn’t this a thing?” I am happy to say, it now is.

Bro-nuts
1 box brownies, prepared according to instructions
20 donut holes
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup chocolate chips

1. Prepare the brownies according to the instructions on the box.
2. When the brownies are done and still warm, place the 20 donut holes evenly on top of the brownies, making four rows of five donut holes.
3. While the brownies are cooled, make your ganache by melting the heavy cream and chocolate chips together. I usually do this using the double boiler method of placing a bowl over a pan of boiling water.
4. Allow the ganache to cool for a few minutes then top each donut hole with it.

The response in my home was very good. Very, very good. Everyone here loves brownies and to see this variation topped with two other things they love was pretty exciting! I’ll admit, I was hesitant to try one. I was scared that I was going to have one and not be able to stop. I managed to work up the courage and have half and HOLY COW!!! AMAZING!

Much of the east coast is getting ready for a whopper of a storm the next few days. There will be snow to shovel, forts and snowmen to be built. People will need energy and the Bro-nut can help with that. So add a few more things to your desperate pre-storm shopping list.

Enjoy!
