Missing Holiday Recipe

lrostron | Oct 9, 2007 03:26 PM

I've moved five times in the last five years, and of course, now that we're creeping up on the holidays, I cannot find an old recipe I had. Of course, I cannot remember who's recipe it is, or where I got it (actually, I think I clipped it from a newspaper) or what its called. We jokingly called it Death by Chocolate, but it is not Narsi David's recipe with the raspberry sauce. It was a brownie baked in a sheet pan, not a heavy brownie, somewhat lighter, and then cut up and placed in a 8-9" round buttered pan or bowl, lining the bottom and side of the round. Then a chocolate mousse was made, still, fairly light with the addition of egg whites, and that was placed in the now brownie lined mold. This was chilled until set, inverted and unmolded onto a plate. Then a chocolate ganache was made, and poured over the entire thing, and allowed to set again in the refrigerator. It was served in very thin slices, because it was so rich. I suppose, as I know the steps by heart, I could guess and cobble a recipe together, but if anyone has this, I'd appreciate it!
