No lunch box brownie, these sophisticated bars, with subtle hazelnut undertones, resemble chocolate truffles or firm ganache. The Love’n Bake Hazelnut Praline adds nuttiness to the flavor of the bars, which are enhanced with two kinds of chocolate. (Use the best quality chocolate you can find.)
To retain their fudgy quality, bake these bar at a steady low temperature until set and the surface is lightly and uniformly dry. (Touch the surface with your fingertip; if some batter sticks, cool a few minutes longer.) Once cooled and portioned, the bars will keep for a week in the refrigerator or up to a month in the freezer. Just remember to let them warm slightly before serving. (We owe credit to the book Chocolate Obsession by Fran Gage for inspiring this recipe.)
