Triple Chocolate Brownies

Total Time:
45 min

18 brownies

  • 3 sticks plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 12 ounces best-quality bittersweet chocolate
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups superfine sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate buttons, chips, or morsels
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate buttons, chips or morsels
  • Approximately 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar, for garnish
  • Special equipment: Baking tin (approximately 11 1/4 inches by 9 inches by 2 inches), sides and base lined with baking parchment.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt the butter and dark chocolate together in a large heavy based pan over a low heat.

In a bowl or large measuring jug, beat the eggs together with the superfine sugar and vanilla extract.

Allow the chocolate mixture to cool a little, then add the egg and sugar mixture and beat well. Fold in the flour and salt. Then stir in the white chocolate buttons or chips, and the semisweet chocolate buttons or chips. Beat to combine then scrape and pour the brownie mixture into the prepared tin.

Bake for about 25 minutes. You can see when the brownies are ready because the top dries to a slightly paler brown speckle, while the middle remains dark, dense and gooey. Even with such a big batch you do need to keep checking on it: the difference between gooey brownies and dry ones is only a few minutes. Remember, too, that they will continue to cook as they cool.

To serve, cut into squares while still warm and pile up on a large plate, sprinkling with confectioners' sugar pushed with a teaspoon through a small sieve.

Simply sinful. I had to bake these for about 30 minutes. I think some chefs forget that not everyone has a commercial grade oven. This is no problem the recipe tells what to look for to determine doneness. This is the first recipe of hers that I have tried, I will try others.

These brownies definitely need to be in the oven longer than it was listed. Other than that, they are really good! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These brownies are the BEST I have made.. yummy good. I recommend to everyone .. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The taste is okay. I did this recipe about an hour ago and it smelled and looks very good. Although the texture isn't all nice and moist. It is more of a chocolate dry somewhat brownie. Would I go back and finish the pan of the brownies? Yes, I will. Will I make this recipe over again if I wanted brownies? No, I will not because I know there is better recipes out there and feel like I should've chose a recipe from a different publisher. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cannot tell you how good these are. Delicious!! My family loves them and asks when I will make them again. This is my "go to" recipe for brownies. No more box brownies for us. This is way better than anything in a box. Nothing is better than watching your family appreciate what you bake them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent brownie. Goes really good in my white chocolate trifle with strawberries and cream. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had to bake these 15 minutes more and the edges were crunchy but the middle was still gooey... but that kind of made them better! My guests really liked the crunchy-ooey-gooey combo! Super chocolatey, too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have loved these since the first time I baked them. Sadly I was diagnosed with celiac/gluten intolerance this last holiday season. Good news is that this recipe is so light on the flour, that my GF flour works fantastically. And they don't crumble like most GF brownies, because of their fudgy goodness. Nigella is a food goddess : Great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

You just have over baked them cause they are the exact opposite of a cake type brownie if not over baked. item not reviewed by moderator and published
