These Small Batch Cosmic Brownies will take you back. These fudgy brownies are topped with creamy ganache and sprinkled with cholate candy.  


Units Scale


  • 1/4 cup canola oil, or another vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt


Chocolate Frosting

  • 3 ounces milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips chopped ( 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon)
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • sprinkles


To Make Brownies

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place a large piece of parchment paper in a 9 x 5 loaf pan so the brownies are easier to get out when they are done.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together canola oil, cocoa powder, and sugar.
  3. Mix in the egg until fully incorporated, then mix in the vanilla.
  4. Mix in flour and salt until the flour is fully combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Spread brownie batter in pan. Smooth out the batter with a spatula and bake for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Let cool for 30 minutes.

To make Chocolate Frosting

  1. Place heavy cream in a small bowl. Microwave in 10-second increments until the cream is very hot but not boiling.
  2. Add the chocolate chips to the cream. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until a smooth chocolate sauce forms. 
  3. Pour chocolate over the top of the brownies. Use a spoon to spread the chocolate evenly. Add the sprinkles on top of the brownies.
  4. Let the brownies sit for 1-2 hours, or until the chocolate thickens into a frosting*. Use the parchment to lift the brownies out of the pan. Cut into squares and serve.


In step 4 you can refrigerate the brownies to make the frosting set quicker.
