When brownies are completely cooled, coat with Ganache.


Place the chocolate pieces into a heat proof bowl.

Bring the heavy cream to a boil in a small saucepan, and pour it over the chocolate pieces and let stand for one minute.

Gently whisk in the butter, until both the butter and chocolate are melted.

Spread ganache on cooled brownies. Let stand about 15 minutes until set, then cut into pieces.
