There's always room for dessert, like all the time! I have the best brownie recipe to share with you with a huge plus, adding chocolate ganache on top (inspired by the amazing Maja Vase)  and it will become the most dense-chocolate dessert you have ever taste.

My wonderland, is a land full of sprinkles, super tiny sprinkles in all shapes and colors that I could use to decorate a cake, brownie in this case. I could spend my whole life doing this... Designing and decorating cakes with tiny little sugar pearls. It makes me feel in a peaceful state of mind, happy and relaxed. And you? how does it look like "your" wonderland?
