Super Fudgy Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies
5 ounces semisweet chocolate
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/2 tablespoons instant espresso or coffee powder
8 tablespoons unsalted butter -- (1 stick) cut into quarters
3 large eggs -- room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray
8-inch square baking pan with nonstick vegetable cooking spray. Fold two 12-inch
lengths of foil lengthwise so that they measure 7 inches wide. Fit one sheet in
bottom of greased pan, pushing it into corners and up sides of pan; overhang
will help in removal of baked brownies. Fit second sheet in pan in same manner,
perpendicular to first sheet. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In medium heat-proof bowl set oven a pan of almost-simmering water, melt
chocolates and butter, stirring occasionally until mixture is smooth. Whisk in
cocoa and espresso powder until incorporated. Set aside to cool slightly.
3. Whisk together eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt in medium bowl until combined.
Whisk chocolate mixture into egg mixture; then stir in flour until just

with rubber spatula; bake until slightly puffed and toothpick inserted in center
comes out with a small amount of moist batter clinging to it, 35 to 40 minutes.
Cool on wire rack to room temperature, about 2 hours, then remove brownies from
pan using foil handles. Cut into 1-inch square and serve. (Do not cut brownies
until ready to serve; brownies can be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated up to
