Rosie 's Always Up For Some Fudge Brownies


It's been about... hmmmm... two minutes since I made something sweet, so I think I need to make some brownies.  I've made a lot of brownies and I don't think I ever make the same recipe twice since I'm always looking for the "ultimate" brownie.  Haven't found it yet, but I also haven't ever been disappointed in any brownie I've made.  So here's another brownie recipe for you brownie-lovers out there.  It's kinda fudgie and it's got different chocolates in it, and it's got a chocolate glaze on top.  So what's not to love?

For the brownies:
1 stick butter, unsalted
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs, room temp
1 TB vanilla extract 
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 TB espresso powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
 Heat oven to 350°Line 8x8" baking pan with buttered parchment paper

Medium saucepan, low heat.  Melt butter and chopped chocolate.
Remove from heat, stir in sugar until sugar is somewhat dissolved and you get a grainy paste.
Whisk in eggs, one at a time, incorporating completely, until you have smooth, shiny batter. Whisk in vanilla.

In another bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, salt, and espresso powder.

Pour chocolate mixture over dry mixture, folding in until just mixed.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Pour into prepared pan.  Back about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached.
Place on wire rack and let cool completely.

For the glaze:
6 oz. dark chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 stick unsalted butter
1 TB corn syrup
2 tsp espresso powder
Combine all ingredients in small saucepan.  Stir over low heat until chocolate is completely melted and glaze is smooth.  Pour over cooled brownies, spreading into an even layer.

Let cool at room temperature, then refrigerate until completely set.
