How to Make these Brownies

These Triple Chocolate Brownies are not overly sweet, are light, have a wonderful chewy texture and are quick and easy to make.

I made these brownies using a combination of melted semi-sweet chocolate, cocoa and semi-sweet chocolate pieces.

Ingredients Overview:

  • Unsalted butter 
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
  • Instant espresso. Adding just a touch of espresso deepens and enhances the flavour of the chocolate without imparting a coffee flavour to the brownies.
  • Eggs
  • Brown and granulated sugar
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • All-purpose flour
  • Cocoa powder
  • Baking powder and salt
  • Dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • These brownies would also be delicious with half a cup of chopped walnuts or pecans.

Steps Overview:

  1. Start by preheating your oven and placing a rack in the centre of your oven.
  2. Grease and flour the bottom and sides of a 9-inch square pan or line with parchment paper.
  3. In a small saucepan, heat about 1 to 2 inches of water over medium heat. Place a heat resistant bowl over the pot of simmering water. Put the butter and 4 ounces of chopped chocolate in the bowl. Stir the butter and chocolate until they melt, then whisk until smooth. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  4. To the melted chocolate, add the sugars, dissolved espresso, vanilla extract and eggs. Stir until combined.
  5. Add the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt to the melted chocolate mixture and stir until combined.
  6. Add in the last 1/2 cup of chopped chocolate, and if desired nuts. Stir to combine and scrape into the baking dish.
  7. Bake for about 18 to 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out with a few crumbs. If you prefer a chewier brownie then I would recommend you don’t bake the brownies for more than 18 minutes before checking for doneness.
  8. Let the brownies cool a bit before slicing into portions.

How to Serve

The brownies are delicious served warm with a scoop of ice cream or with a nice cup of coffee or tea.

How to Store

Brownies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Storing them in the refrigerator will keep them fresh for longer.

These brownies can also be made ahead of time and frozen for up to three months. Pack them in an airtight container with sheets of wax paper in between layers.

Thaw frozen brownies overnight in the refrigerator. You can warm them in the microwave oven before serving.
