The GDC Truffle Brownie Recipe is HERE


We've been getting loads of requests for our brownie recipe lately and we're happy to <finally> share it with you.

A few notes.

If made in a square/rectangular pan, you can cut the brownies into cute bite-size squares and be the hit of the party. If you choose to use mini-cupcake forms, make sure you don't over bake them. Pull them out of the oven when moist crumbs stick to your toothpick.

We layer the brownies with our ganache frosting but they are perfectly delicious without it.

We LOVE the crunch of the nibs but if they're not your thing, leave them out.

And here's a link to our Chocolate Pantry Kit, complete with all the ingredients you need to make these brownies.
