Gotta eat ’em all ’cause he’s Danny Phantom.
Danny Phantom was a pretty rad show about a dude in high school who accidentally turned into a half ghost and he had to deal with his ghost hunter parents along with other teenage nonsense. It was a fun show, and awhile back someone suggested that I make something Danny Phantom themed for Nerds Gotta Eat. And here we are.
This recipe is in 3 parts, and it seems pretty difficult but is actually incredibly easy. So we’ll start with the brownie base. You’ll need:
4oz unsweetened bakers chocolate
1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour
Start by preheating your oven to 350*F and grabbing your usual brownie pan. Spray it with nonstick goop of your liking (I also put tin foil down; it makes for an easier removal). In a double boiler (if you don’t have one, just grab 2 pots, fill the larger of the 2 up 1/3 of the way with water, then put the other one inside of it), put your bakers chocolate and butter. You’ll want this on a medium low heat so it doesn’t burn, it just melts.
While that’s melting, put your other ingredients into a mixer, and make sure everything is well combined. Pour in the melted chocolate when that’s ready. After everything is well mixed, pour it into your lined/sprays brownie pan, and bake for about 25 minutes. Let that cool.
filling ectoplasm, you’ll need:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups confectioners sugar
4 tbsp green creme de menthe
Mix those together in a mixer. You need to be sure this is well mixed, so start by mixing just the butter. I find that if I rest the butter on the stove while the oven is baking the brownies, everything goes far more smoothly. Once they’re mixed and the brownies are cool (but not out of the pan yet), spread this atop the brownies.
For the chocolate on top, you’ll need:
6oz (1 cup) semisweet chocolate chips
6 tbsp unsalted butter
Get your double boiler back out, were going ghost! Melt that stuff together, and spread it on top of the brownies. Make it as even as possible, and pop that bad boy in the fridge for at least 2 hours. After everything is hardened up, you can cut and serve your spooky brownies. Everyone (even the ghosts) will be pleased!
