- Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
- Line a 20 - 22 cm round baking pan with parchment paper. (do not use a bigger one)
- Beat the butter and brown sugar with the whisk attachment for about 10 minutes, until light and fluffy.
- In the meantime, sift the flour, salt and baking soda in to a bowl.
- When the mixture is fluffy, add the egg and beat until incorporated.
- Add the vanilla and beat.
- Remove mixing bowl from stand, add the flour mixture and gently fold with a spatula.
- Add half of the chocolate chips and mix.
- Divide the mixture in half and set aside.
- Prepare the chocolate ganache.
- Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan, until it almost comes to a boil and remove from heat.
- Place the finely chopped couverture in a bowl and pour the heavy cream over it.
- Let the mixture sit for ½ a minute. Then stir with a spatula until completely incorporated.
- Set it aside to cool until it is no longer so runny.
- Spread half of the dough mixture in to the pan and spread the ganache over it, leaving a 2 cm border clean all around.
- Spread the remaining dough using a teaspoon or a small scoop over the ganache. (do not try to spread it. It will spread while baking.
- Sprinkle with the rest of the chocolate chips and bake for 25-30 minutes.
- In this way the dessert will come out quite soft. If you want a crunchier bisquit, you can cover the baking pan with aluminum foil and bake for another 10 minutes.
- When ready, remove from oven and let it cool a little on a wire rack.
- Turn out from pan, cut in to pieces and serve.
