  1. In a medium saucepan, heat and stir the 3/4 cup Ghirardelli® 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips and the butter over very low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan. Coat foil with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  3. Stir the 1 cup sugar into the cooled chocolate mixture in saucepan. Add the two eggs, one at a time, beating with a spatula or wooden spoon just until combined. Stir in vanilla.

Spread mixture evenly over slightly baked brownies using a tablespoon. Bake for 35 minutes or until top is light brown and mixture appears evenly set. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.
  6. Spread Bittersweet Chocolate Glaze over the top of the cooled brownies. Let stand until set. Use the foil to lift the uncut brownies out of the pan. Cut into 36 pieces.

This interesting recipe looked too yummy to not try. I followed as directed with only one exception.. crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy. The topping did not set until the next day, and overall the dessert was much better the next. That said, it was deffinately more of a fudge than a brownie, and awfully rich. I only gave it three stars because of the fudge vs brownie factor. I would like to hear other people's suggestions on making it more of a brownie.

Yummy! Made it last night for some friends and they loved it! Didn't use the chocolate glaze, and it made the peanut-butter layer a little crunchy on top which was delicious! Good second-day, too.

loved it!!! made mine in mimi muffin pan, and glazed the top with chocolate in "string pattern" from a disposible piping bag with a very small hole cut in bottom. added just enough of the bittersweet withoutover whelming it

So yummy!!! Made and shared at two events and everyone loved these. Requires a bit more than one bag of the Ghirardelli chocolate, so make sure you buy two.

I followed the recipe exactly except for using Nestle's morsels instead of the recommended brand. The frosting was delicious, but the brownie-peanut butter part wasn't very good at all. The peanut butter flavor was not distinct enough, nor was the chocolate flavor, so overall the flavor was kind on blah. I thought these looked so good and different, but was kind of disappointed, I'm sorry to say. Would not make again.

I made these for Christmas and they turned out perfect, if you follow the directions exactly they come out looking just like the pictures. My only complaint was that they did take awhile to make. I did get a lot of compliments however, so it was worth it.

I ran into trouble making this recipe because the ingredient list is a little confusing. Most of the ingredients are listed twice if they're used twice, but the sugar is not. I wish the recipe listed 1 cup sugar twice in the ingredient list. I accidentally used the full amount of sugar in the bottom layer instead of just half of it. However, the brownie bites were good despite that mistake. I liked them better after storing them covered for a couple of days, because they softened. They were very crumbly, which made them a little hard to eat.
