Toffee Brownie Cake

Chocolate cake, with chocolate ganache, topped with Heath toffee bits.  Do I need to continue?  It was delicious!

You will need:
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoon cocoa powder
4 ounces semisweet chocolate (I used Baker's squares)
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla


for the chocolate ganache:
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (I used Baker's squares)
1/2 cup heavy cream


1 cup Heath toffee bits
1.  In a medium bowl, mix together flour, salt, and cocoa powder.

2.  In a medium microwave-safe bowl, stir the chocolate and margarine.  Microwave in 30 second increments until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.

3.  Add the sugar to the chocolate mixture, and then the eggs.  Mix in the vanilla.

4.  Pour chocolate mixture over dry ingredients and stir until just blended.

5.  Pour batter into a greased 8x8 pan.  Bake at 325 for 30  minutes. 

6.  While brownies are baking, prepare ganache:  Place chopped chocolate in a small bowl.  

7.  Measure cream into a glass measuring cup.  Microwave for 90 seconds until cream is hot.

8.  Pour hot cream over chopped chocolate.  Let it sit for 1 minute and then stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.  If needed, microwave for 15 seconds, until chocolate is melted.

9.  Let ganache sit until it's thicken, about 30 minutes. 

10.  When brownies are done, let them cool for about 15 minutes.  Then pour ganache over the brownies and spread evenly. 

11.  Sprinkle with toffee bits and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
