    Never tried this before but I want to. What kind of chocolate do I use? Can't be melted Hershey bars or bakers chocolate so what kind. I have been in Wal-Mart around the holiday baking section have seen this white chocolate in square blocks but can it be any good. Is their a special chocolate and does it come in milk chocolate, can't be coco.

    If you want a soft chocolate layer on top use a buttercream or as @brianshaw suggests, a ganache.
    If you want it to be slightly firm with a bit of tooth just dump a thick layer of chocolate (dark or semi sweet or white or even milk chocolate will work) chips on top when the pan is still hot from the oven.
    Allow to melt and then spread with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon and allow to cool.
    Hershey bars would be awesome IME!

    Can i use half&half? They were selling chocalot covered brownes on QVC so thought since i make brownies why not add the chocalot myself. Don't want a frosting cover
