  • Summary

    I found this photocopied recipe in my file and while I may not know what book it came from, I can personally attest to its spectacular chocolatey beauty. Make a batch of this when you want to spoil someone rotten or remind them why sometimes dark chocolate can be the most satisfying flavor in the world. If you choose to add the Andes mints, add them to the top of the brownies as soon as you pull them out of the oven; they will soften lightly from the heat of the warm brownies and give you a fantastic choco-minty hit.

    Ingredients

    • 1¼ C. all purpose flour
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 2 Tbs. dark unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 11 oz. dark chocolate (60-72% cacao), coarsely chopped
    • 1 C. (2 sticks), unsalted butter, cut into 1 inch pieces
    • 1 tsp. expresso powder (I used 2 Tbs. brewed strong coffee)
    • 1½ C. granulated sugar
    • ½ C. firmly packed light brown sugar
    • 5 large eggs, at room temperature
    • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
    • about 24 Andes mints, unwrapped (optional)
