Triple Chocolate Brownies aka Scout’s Brownies

Triple Chocolate Brownies Everyone loves brownies, it’s the ultimate comfort food, rich, chewy, and chocolaty, it triggers all your happy spots.

I have made brownies from box mixes and from scratch, my favorite ones are those that I make using the recipe I found in a mystery novel I read.  I call them Triple Chocolate Brownies, but in the book they’re called Scout’s Brownies.

I’d like to share the recipe I found in  Diane Mott Davidson’s book “Dying for Chocolate”.  I read this book years ago and have been making these amazing brownies since.  They really are “to die for”.  They’ve become a family favorite.

If possible try to use the same brands the recipe calls for.

Ingredients:

1 cup unsalted butter

3 ½ oz. Valrhona or best quality unsweetened chocolate squares

3 tbs. Valrhona or European style cocoa powder

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

½ tsp. baking powder

1  tsp. salt

4 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 cup Ghirardelli chocolate chip morsels

Directons:

  • Preheat oven 350 degrees
  •  Melt butter and unsweetened chocolate squares in a double boiler; set aside to cool
  • Sift together cocoa, flour, baking powder, and salt
  •  Beat eggs until creamy
  • Beating constantly slowly add sugar
  • Add vanilla and cooled chocolate mixture
  • Stir in dry ingredients until just combined
  •  Spread batter into buttered 9”x13” baking pan
  •   Sprinkle chocolate chips over surface
  •    Bake 30-35 mins.  or until center is set

Cool completely before cutting into 32 brownies.  Serve with a glass of ice cold milk for an awesome treat.
