This Triple Chocolate Brownie recipe is for all of the chocolate addicts out there. If you are looking for something to satisfy your chocolate craving then I recommend a batch of these brownies! These brownies are a cross between a chewy and a cakey brownie and have an intense chocolate flavour.
How to Make Triple Chocolate Brownies
I made these brownies using a combination of melted semi-sweet chocolate, cocoa and semi-sweet chocolate pieces. Adding just a touch of espresso deepens and enhances the flavour of the chocolate without imparting a coffee flavour to the brownies.
- Unsalted butter
- Semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
- Instant espresso
- Brown sugar packed
- Granulated sugar
- Pure vanilla extract
- All-purpose flour
- Cocoa powder
- Baking powder and salt
- Dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
These Triple Chocolate Brownies are not overly sweet, are light, have a wonderful chewy texture and are quick and easy to make. They would also be delicious with half a cup of chopped walnuts or pecans. They're delicious served warm with a scoop of ice cream or with a nice cup of coffee. Enjoy!
Triple Chocolate Brownies
- ⅓ cup unsalted butter softened
- ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
- 1 tsp. instant espresso dissolved into 1 tsp. very hot water
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup brown sugar packed
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp. cocoa
- ½ tsp. baking powder
- ¼ tsp. sea salt
- ½ cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Place a rack in the centre of your oven and preheat oven to 350ºF.
- Grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch square pan or line with parchment paper.
- In a small saucepan heat about 1 to 2 inches of water over medium heat. Place a heat resistant bowl over 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.
- To the melted chocolate, add the sugars, dissolved espresso, vanilla extract and eggs. Stir until it’s all well mixed.
- Add the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir until combined and there are no traces of flour.
- Add in the last ½ cup of chopped chocolate, stir and pour into the baking dish.
- Bake in the oven for 18 to 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out with a few crumbs.
- Let the brownies cool then slice with a sharp knife into 16 pieces. 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.
