  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cups 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter
  • 3- ounces dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon brewed espresso at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2- ounces dark chocolate chips chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Butter or grease bottom and sides of a 9x9 baking pan. Line with parchment paper (up sides as well), grease top of parchment.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder; set aside.
  • Place butter and 3-ounces chocolate chips in a small bowl and microwave in 45-second increments, stirring between, until melted. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Add melted chocolate to a large bowl. Stir in both sugars, vanilla and espresso until combined. Stir in eggs then flour mixture just until combined. Fold in remaining chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking dish. Bake 35-40 minutes, until top is mostly set and toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudge-like coating. Allow to cool 30-60 minutes, lift brownies out of pan using parchment edges, then cut into squares. Extras (if any) can be stored sealed on counter for a few days, and fridge a few more after that.
