Jennifer’s Triple Chocolate Brownies

IMG_2101 My friend Jennifer is an expert baker. Seriously, she’s amazing. So, during her visit this week I asked if she could share one of her favorite recipes. She brought Triple Chocolate Brownies and oh boy are they awesome! The three types of chocolate make them incredibly chocolate-y, but they are also light and fluffy which is different from most brownie recipes I’ve made (ahem, boxed brownies). Jennifer’s recipe was altered from a recipe found in a cookbook called Santa’s Favorite Cookies, which has several other fabulous recipes, but I still think this one is the best.

Ingredients

  • 3 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 squares (1 ounce each) semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips
  • Powdered sugar

    Oops! Sour cream should also be in there.

Details

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease 13×9 inch pan.
  • Chop baking chocolate, so it will melt evenly.

    Chop baking chocolate as best you can, so it will melt evenly

  • Place both baking chocolates and butter in microwavable bowl.  Microwave at high 2 minutes or until butter is melted; stir until smooth.  Cool to room temperature (or almost room temperature). If the chocolate is too hot, it will cook the eggs when you mix them together… Jennifer says this is bad

    Slice the butter too.

    It won’t look this nice straight out of the microwave. Stir it a bit. You can also melt this over the stove.

  • Beat sugar, eggs, and vanilla in large bowl until slightly thickened.  Beat in chocolate mixture until well combined.

    Look how fast Jennifer stirs! See I told you she was an expert.

  • Combine flour, salt, and baking powder in small bowl. Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture; beat until blended.

Jennifer says you don’t need to mix the flour mixture in a separate bowl, just put it right into the chocolate mix.

 

  •  Add sour cream; beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan.

Make sure your pan is greased first!

Mmmm, look at that chocolate-y goodness!

 

  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out almost clean.
  • Cool brownies completely in pan on wire rack.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into squares.IMG_2100
