Brownies are my second favorite dessert, second only to ice cream. I'm a little picky about my brownies. I like them fudgey and dense. Sometimes I like nuts in them, but most of the time I'm a purist, and don't want any add-ins involved. I have made many different from scratch brownie recipes. This recipe is by far one of my favorites, it is a little involved, but nothing too outrageous.
(Recipe adapted from the Barefoot Contessa)
Melt together butter, 1 pound of semisweet chocolate chips, and unsweetened chocolate and set aside.
Stir together eggs, coffee, vanilla and sugar. Add in the chocolate and butter mixture.
Mix together one cup of the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix in the chocolate mixture.
Stir together remaining chocolate chips with remaining flour, once they are fully coated, add into the batter, stirring gently.
Bake in a 9x13 pan for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. DO NOT OVER COOK. I actually liked them a tiny bit undercooked.
Once they cool, store them in the refrigerator, it makes them even better the next day!
