Total: 1 hr 5 min
Prep: 30 min
Cook: 35 min
Yield: 20 large
Level: Intermediate


1 pound unsalted butter
1 pound plus 12 ounces semisweet
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
6 extra-large
3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Butter and flour a 12 x 18 x 1-inch sheet.

Melt together the butter, 1 pound of chocolate chips, and the unsweetened chocolate in a medium bowl over simmering water. Allow to cool slightly. In a large bowl, stir (do not beat) together the eggs, coffee granules, vanilla, and sugar. Stir the warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and allow to cool to room temperature.

In a medium bowl, sift together 1 cup of flour, the powder, and salt. Add to the cooled chocolate mixture. Toss the walnuts and 12 ounces of in a medium bowl with 1/4 cup of flour, then add them to the chocolate batter. Pour into the sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes, then rap the baking sheet against the oven shelf to force the air to escape from between the pan and the brownie dough. Bake for about 15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not overbake! Allow to cool thoroughly, refrigerate, and cut into 20 large squares.

    I love eating brownies. But they have to be a little moist for me to eat them.
