Chocolate and Pistachio Brownie BarsMadeleine Cocina
Brownies are always a crowd-pleasing dessert. This recipe for brownies goes beyond the classic with three layers of rich flavor. A base layer of rich chocolate brownies is studded with vibrant pistachios. This layer is topped with pistachio ice cream then topped with a rich chocolate ganache. Make sure your ganache is prepared before you top the brownies with the ice cream, otherwise you will end up with a melted mess.
