Yes these really are the best damn brownies you'll ever eat in your life. Yes I know that's saying a lot but these brownies are the best damn brownies I ever cooked and tasted in my life. I made two pans of these two days ago and the people in my house ate them all. And its almost 4 A.M. eastern right now and I'm thinking about making some more right now but everyone would just wake up and eat them. I will warn you these brownies are highly addictive.
1. 1 pound unsalted butter
2. 1 pound plus 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, divided
3. 6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
4. 6 extra-large eggs
5. 3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
6. 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
7. 2 1/4 cups sugar
8. 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
9. 1 tablespoon baking powder
10. 1 teaspoon ground sea salt
11. 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 12 by 18 by 1 1/2-inch sheet pan.
Melt together the butter, 1 pound of chocolate chips, and the unsweetened chocolate in a medium bowl over simmering water. Allow to cool slightly. In a large bowl, stir (do not beat) together the eggs, coffee granules, vanilla, and sugar. Stir the warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and allow to cool to room temperature.
In a medium bowl, sift together 1 cup of flour, the baking powder, and salt. Add to the cooled chocolate mixture. Toss the remaining 12 ounces of chocolate chips in a medium bowl with 1/4 cup of flour, then add them to the chocolate batter. Pour into the prepared sheet pan. Spoon the peanut butter over the top of the chocolate mixture and using a knife, swirl it through the chocolate mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes, then rap the baking sheet against the oven shelf to force the air to escape from between the pan and the brownie dough. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes more or until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not overbake! Allow to cool thoroughly, refrigerate, and cut into large squares.
I love these brownies topped with vanilla ice cream, cool whipped topping, and a cherry. Sometimes I add hot fudge syrup and sometimes I don't. These are so delicious.
