Preheat oven to 350°F and grease your individual square pan. Set aside.
In a medium sized pot over medium-high heat, melt butter. Whisk in dark chocolate and continue stirring until melted. Whisk in sugar, cocoa powder and water, whisking until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool for about 5 minutes.
Add egg, additional egg yolk and vanilla extract - whisking like a mad woman so you don't wind up with scrambled brownies. Then stir in flour and salt, until just combined.
Fill each square with about 1/4 cup brownie batter, leaving a little room for rising. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let brownies cool for 10 minutes in pan, turn out onto wire rack and let cool completely.
Brownies are best the next day, so store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
for chocolate glaze:
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add milk, corn syrup and chopped chocolate, stirring slowly to allow chocolate to melt completely. Once melted, remove from heat and whisk in powdered sugar.
Immediately spread the chocolate glaze on the top of each brownie and top with sprinkles or chopped up candies. Let frosting set for 10 minutes and serve!
