If you hate chocolate, do not read this post.

Do not melt 2 sticks of butter, 12 oz of chocolate chips, and 3 oz unsweetened baking chocolate.
Do not let that cool slightly.

If you hate chocolate, do not combine 1 c and 2 tbs of sugar, 3 eggs, and 1 tbs vanilla extract.
Do not combine the chocolate mixture with that.

ESPECIALLY DONT TASTE IT. because you hate chocolate, and that would be bad.

Don't let the whole mixture cool and add 1/2 c. flour, 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder, and 1/2 tsp. salt

And don't take out a spoon and eat some. That would be bad.

Finally, make sure you don't add another bag of chocolate chips. That would be horrible if you hated chocolate.

If you really hate chocolate, don't grease a 9x13 pan and bake the brownies for 30 min.

HOWEVER, I love chocolate. So I did do all of that. And then I ate one. And it was good.
Thank you, Ina.

These are from Ina Garten's Recipe, and they are gooey and chewy and delicious. They took me about 35 min to bake, so I suppose the time could vary. They are good. And I recommend them highly.

Also, they are exceedingly rich, so if you cut them smaller it is probably better for your waist. But they are good, and you might end up eating 6 anyway. :) Have fun!

Ina’s Outrageous Brownies


2 sticks unsalted butter

1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

3 oz. unsweetened chocolate

3 extra-large eggs

1 ½ tbsp. instant coffee powder

1 tbsp. real vanilla extract

1 cup and 2 tbsp. sugar

½ cup and 2 tbsp. flour, divided – ½ cup for batter and 2 tbsp. .in the chips

1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 ½ cups morsels (milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate or butterscotch)

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9×13” metal pan.

Melt together the butter, 1 ½ cups 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 ½ cup of the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to cooled chocolate mixture. Toss the chocolate chips with 2 tbsp. flour to coat. Then add to the chocolate batter. Pour into prepared pan.

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 overbake! Cool thoroughly, refrigerate well and cut into squares.
