Best Brownies EVER!


1 pound unsalted butter
1 pound plus 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, divided
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
6 extra-large eggs
2 tablespoons real vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided (1 cup for batter and 1/4 cup in the
chips and nuts)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups diced walnut pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13 by 18 by 1 1/2-inch
sheet pan.

Melt together the butter, 1 pound chocolate chips, and unsweetened chocolate
on top of a double boiler. Cool slightly. Stir together the eggs, instant
coffee, vanilla and sugar. Stir in the warm chocolate mixture and cool to
room temperature.

Stir together 1 cup of the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to cooled
chocolate mixture. Toss the walnuts and 12 ounces of chocolate chips with
1/4 cup flour to coat. Then add to the chocolate batter. Pour into prepared

Bake for about 30 minutes, or until tester just comes out clean. Halfway
through the baking, rap the pan against the oven shelf to allow air to
escape from between the pan and the brownie dough. Do not over-bake! Cool
thoroughly, refrigerate well and cut into squares.

I usually make those fancy brownies that come from the box. ;) Though, these do sound yummy!
Good luck with the potty training. I have no advice. Maryn did it all herself.
