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.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup muscovado sugar (may substitute dark brown sugar)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1 cup flour
  • 100 grams pistachios
  • 200 grams chocolate (melted and slightly cooled)
  • 0.5 liters ice cream (pistachio)
  • 3 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 90 grams chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius.
  2. Beat the butter until creamy, add the sugar and melted chocolate.
  3. Dust the pistachios with 1 tablespoon flour. Remove the excess flour.
  4. Stir the eggs in, one by one, to the butter mixture. Add the flour, cream, and pistachios. Mix well.
  5. Pour the batter into a greased 8 inch baking pan. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut horizontally to form 2 layers.
  6. Prepare the ganache by placing the cream into a saucepan. When hot, add the chocolate and honey. Remove from heat, allowing the chocolate to melt. Mix well.
  7. Place one layer of the brownie into a clean baking pan. Spread with the pistachio ice cream. Top with the second brownie layer. Pour the ganache over the brownie and place into the freezer for 2-3 hours.
  8. Cut into pieces using a knife dipped into hot water. Serve.

If ever two things were meant for each other, pistachios and brownies are it. These bars are so decadent and delicious; it's impossible to eat just one. This is a very unique dessert to present to guests and everyone loved them. Of course, the end result makes people think they're labor intensive, but they are not at all. Make sure you line your pan with parchment paper. It will help lift them out of the pan a lot easier.
