Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Yields: 9-inch x 9-inch pan
Servings: 9 – 18
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Prepare 9-inch x 9-inch by lining with parchment paper and lightly grease with cooking spray.
Melt the butter in a pot, remove from the heat, pour into a large mixing bowl, and with a hand mixer beat in the sugar. Once combined, mix in your cocoa powder and espresso powder until fully incorporated.
Add in your eggs and then add in the vanilla extract, beating until just incorporated.
Once all that is mixed together add in your flour and slowly mix until just stirred in. At this point, if you are using chocolate chips instead of chocolate chunks, with a rubber spatula fold in 2/3 of a cup of the chips.
Scrape into prepared baking dish. Evenly top with remaining chips or I prefer chocolate chunks, which I spread over the top of the batter and ever so slightly press into. Because they are heavier than chips and they sink right into it. Bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes, until the brownies pull away from the edges slightly, but are still slightly soft in the center. Cool the brownies.
Rad Tip: This brownie recipe can be jazzed up by using any type of chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, walnuts marshmallows, and/or even a few tablespoons of peanut butter and/or caramel swirled into the batter.
