Description

Class Experience

We will learn how to measure dry and wet ingredients, how to follow a recipe, how to use a double boiler, how to roll uniform balls, and how to coat in chocolate. 
I am a professional chef with 10 years of experience. 
Finishing rolling and dipping all of the brownie bites may not be accomplished during class, depending on experience, questions etc. 
Materials and Ingredients Needed:
Sweet & Salty No Bake Brownie Balls

1 cup (180g) semisweet chocolate chips
6 tablespoons (87g) unsalted butter
1/2 cup (100g) white granulated sugar
3/4 cup (145g) light brown sugar
1.5 cups (120g) white all-purpose flour (heat treated -- See Note 1) PLEASE DO THIS BEFORE CLASS AND BRING COOLED FLOUR FOR RECIPE
1/4 cup (20g) Dutch processed cocoa powder (See Note 2)
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 cup (55g) heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup (87g) mini chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips (or semi-sweet)

Note 1: Heat treat it in the microwave: add the flour to a microwave safe bowl. I recommend heat treating more than the recipe calls for (1/2 to 1 cup extra) just to ensure you have enough. Microwave on high in bursts of 30 seconds, stirring in between each burst. Take your time stirring well to make sure none of the flour burns. Use a thermometer to test the flour in a few places to make sure it has reached 165 degrees F throughout all the flour. (If you get less than 165 degrees, return the flour for one more burst of 30 seconds). Heat treat it in the oven: preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a large sheet pan (with sides) with a nonstick liner or parchment paper. Spread the flour on the pan (treat more than you'll use; 1/2 to 1 cup extra). Bake the flour, removing and stirring it, every 1 and 1/2 minutes. Every time you remove the flour to stir, test it with the thermometer. As soon as it reaches 165 degrees F, it's safe. 
Note 2: Make sure to get dutch process instead of natural or plain cocoa powder. The dutch process offers a much more robust and intense chocolate flavor. Regular cocoa powder will make brownie batter more dry and less flavorful. Hershey's "Special Dark" cocoa powder is dutch process and found at most grocery stores.

Materials Needed:
Electric Stand or Hand Mixer, Microwave Access, Stovetop Access, Medium Sized sauce pan, 1 medium sized heat safe bowls, 2 small microwave safe bowls, rubber spatula, 1 Tablespoon measuring spoon, 1 cup Dry measuring cup, 1 cup liquid measuring cup, 1/4 cup dry measuring cup, rimmed baking sheet, wax paper, fork, small ice cream scoop with trigger or small spoon for making brownie bites. Will need one large bowl to make recipe if using hand mixer as well. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental guidance may be needed for this class as we will be using a microwave, stovetop, and electric mixer. Please use your best judgement, as you know your learner best!
