If you’re a chocolate lover, these brownies are three times as luscious!

Triple Chocolate Brownies

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into 1/4 inch pieces
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons flour, sifted
2 tablespoons cocoa powder, preferably Valrhona

Melt the unsweetened chocolate in a double boiler over hot water. Whisk until smooth.

Cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the eggs, 2 at a time, and mix just until incorporated. Stir in the melted unsweetened chocolate and add the vanilla. Stir in the chopped chocolate pieces. Add the salt, flour and cocoa powder; do not overmix.

Spread the batter into a buttered and floured 9-inch square pan. Bake at 325 degrees until almost completely set, about 35 minutes. They should still be moist in the middle. Do not overbake. Let cool before cutting.

    Be careful when using Valrhona cocoa powder. It is super rich and I think you can cut back in your recipes if you are using it. Otherwise instead of the awesome true chocolate taste, you might wind up with something more bitter than you expected. It can really overwhelm the other flavors. Make sure to take time to savor the taste of it in your chocolate recipes!

    I love the delicious taste of Valrhona cocoa powder. We baked 3 cakes at Kitchen Conservatory with 3 different cocoa powders, and Valrhona was tops.

    Thumbs up on the Valrhona cocoa powder. It is a little more expensive then others, but the flavor is
    superior by far. I will use no other cocoa powder once I tried the Valrhona. It is also hard to find,
    but Kitchen Conservatory seems to always have it in stock and ships to me quickly when I run low.

    These are just excellent–no more difficult to make than a mix, but way better. For what it’s worth, 30 min in our 325 oven is plenty.
