Quick and Easy: “Choco-tastic” Brownies

Posted by & filed under brownies, chocolate, Quick and Easy.

BrowniesSo, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, TRB has been taking it easy in the summer heat, frequenting the cupcake trucks of NYC just to get a quick fix. But with the impending departure of a beloved summer intern — who begged TRB to bake something before she leaves for school — it seemed that some “Choco-tastic” Brownies were in order.

These were the talk of the office yesterday, and the recipe was affectionately named by a fellow “foodie” co-worker.
Here’s how you can make a batch of your own:

3 1/2 cups (20 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips (TRB prefers Ghirardelli)
1 stick unsalted butter
1 1/2 tbsp. instant coffee powder
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt (TRB prefers Kosher)
3 eggs
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. granulated sugar

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13×9 baking sheet with aluminum foil; spray with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Melt the chocolate chips and butter in a saucepan. Add vanilla and instant coffee powder. Let cool for 15 minutes.

3. Measure flour, salt, baking powder in a small bowl. Set aside.

4. Combine eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Add chocolate mixture slowly to temper – you do not want scrambled eggs. Add flour mixture and combine.

5. Pour batter into pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

6. Let cool for at least 30 minutes. Cut into squares.
