So I finally made these tonight and OMG....so amazing! The Godiva brownies were uber-decadent...and these were just amazing!! Basically as the name states...outrageous! Now I halved the recipe (and I'd suggest the same to anyone unless you really want 20-24 massive brownies. This recipe made 12 huge brownies which I later cut into 24. I followed the recipe as directed (except I used salted butter as I didn't have any unsalted on hand) and I used vanilla powder instead of vanilla extract. (Also I baked it in a 8x12x2 baking pan.) I will definitely make these again and again. Its quite easy to make but you need loads of chocolate! Love the added instant coffee granules as they add a nice flavour.
1 pound unsalted butter
1 pound plus 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
6 extra-large eggs
3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Butter and flour a 12 x 18 x 1-inch baking sheet.
- Melt together the butter, 1 pound of chocolate chips, and the unsweetened chocolate in a medium bowl over simmering water. Allow to cool slightly. In a large bowl, stir (do not beat) together the eggs, coffee granules, vanilla, and sugar. Stir the warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and allow to cool to room temperature.
- In a medium bowl, sift together 1 cup of flour, the baking powder, and salt. Add to the cooled chocolate mixture. Toss the walnuts and 12 ounces of chocolate chips in a medium bowl with 1/4 cup of flour, then add them to the chocolate batter. Pour into the baking sheet.
- Bake for 20 minutes, then rap the baking sheet against the oven shelf to force the air to escape from between the pan and the brownie dough. Bake for about 15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not overbake! Allow to cool thoroughly, refrigerate, and cut into 20 large squares.
