  3. In a medium sized bowl, blend the brownie mix, applesauce, wine, and eggs with a wooden spoon until all of the dry ingredients are moist. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread the batter into the pan.
  4. Bake 40-45 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  5. Cool completely.
  6. *Ganache*.
  7. Place the chocolate and the butter in a microwave-safe bowl.
  8. Microwave for 10 seconds and then remove and stir.
  9. Repeat microwaving every 10 seconds and stiring until the chocolate is all melted.
  10. Slowly pour in the wine and mix thoroughly. Don't work it too much or it loses its shine.
