Yield

64 bars

Ingredients

3/4 cup special dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, cut into chunks
2/3 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 large eggs
2/3 cup all-purpose flour

Glaze Ingredients

3/4 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 (1-ounce) square white baking chocolate, melted

Directions

Preheat oven to 350&de;F (177°C). Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, extending over foil 2-inches over edges. Grease foil with cooking spray; set aside.

Place 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips and butter in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100% power), stirring every 30 seconds, or until chips are melted (1 to 2 minutes). Stir until smooth.

In a medium bowl, combine sugar and eggs. Beat at medium speed until thick and smooth. Add melted chocolate mixture; continue beating until smooth. Stir in flour and remaining 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips just until mixed. Spread batter into prepared pan.

Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until edges are set and center appears soft. (Do not overbake!) Cool completely.

Meanwhile, place semi-sweet chocolate chips in small bowl. Place whipping cream in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until whipping cream just comes to a boil (3 to 4 minutes). Pour warm cream over chocolate chips; let stand 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Cool. Spread over cooled bars.

Drop 8 small portions of melted white chocolate randomly over glaze. Pull knife through white chocolate to create design. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or until serving time.

Carefully lift bars out of pan using foil ends. Cut into bars using sharp knife. (If necessary, wipe knife occasionally.) To serve, place small bars into paper mini baking cups.

Additional Information

Dark chocolate has less sugar and milk than semi-sweet and milk chocolate. It also has a richer chocolate flavor.
