The secret is in the quality of the actual chocolate used. The flavor of the chocolate used is the flavor of the brownies.

These brownies have a LOT of flavor.

11 Chocolate Brownies

Ingredients:

3 eggs, slightly beaten
¾ cup butter, softened
1½ cups sugar (I used evaporated cane sugar)

¾ cup cocoa powder (I use Ramstadt Dark Cocoa, Dagoba, or Scharffen Berger)
¾ cup all-purpose flour or pastry flour
1 cup broken up chocolate bars (see the list below the recipe)

1-2 Tbsp coconut oil

 

Preheat the oven to 325F. Put 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil into your 9×12″pan & set it into the oven to melt. Remove when oil has melted.

Cream the butter, sugar, and eggs.

Add the cocoa powder & flour, and mix until just blended.

Add in the broken chocolate bars and stir until mixed throughout.

Make sure the oil is coating the sides & bottom of the pan. Spread the batter into the pan, & bake for 30-40 minutes. Let the brownies cool in the pan.

IF DESIRED:
You can melt down some chocolate & drizzle it over the top as they are cooling, or make a ganache frosting, if you like frosted brownies. For ganache, mix equal parts good chocolate & heavy cream (see our Dark Chocolate Truffles Recipe for the how-to!)

A very simple recipe, but so yummy! So, where does the “11 Chocolate” part come in? That’s the number of types of chocolate used!

Again, the quality of the chocolate & cocoa make all of the difference. I often blend all 3 brands of cocoa powder – ¼ each. Then I take 8 different chocolate bars (or chips, if I’m in a hurry) and cut up enough of each to total 1 cup of broken pieces.
