  • While brownies are cooling, make ganache topping by adding chocolate chips to a microwave safe bowl. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave using 30 second increments and stirring between each. It shouldn’t take more than 60 seconds or so. Once chocolate is melted, add milk to the bowl and stir until well combined.
