Week 3 of 12WOCC - Triple Chocolate Brownies

It seems like just yesterday, I was eagerly waiting for this years 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies event to start off. This year Brenda of Meal Planning Magic is out gracious hostess. But how time flies. Here we are at Week 3 of this event and this week, I'm going to share with you one of my favorite brownie recipes - Nigella Lawson's Triple Chocolate Brownies. Needless to say, these are a super big hit every time they are made. I have yet to meet a single person who didn't like these.  The texture is just right, crusty out the top, chewy on the edges and all gooey and fudgy in the center. My personal favorite pieces are the ones along the edges of the baking tray, I love the chewiness. They are nice, rich and chocolatey but not too sweet, just the way I like it. Of the few chocolate brownie recipes I've tried, this is my favorite. Try it out and you'll see how soon it becomes a favorite in your home too.

Here is the pan straight out of the oven. Its best to wait till this has cooled down completely before cutting into it, atleast a few hours. I've realized that if you cut it while its warm, you'll have a little trouble cutting them clean as well as getting them off the foil.

After patiently waiting and trying not to go insane while waiting, here's what it looks like all cut up -

Do you wanna take a peek and see what the insides look like? Get ready ... here it comes.

Triple Chocolate Brownies 
Adapted from: Nigella Lawson

350g dark chocolate
375g butter
4 eggs
1 tbsp Vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
350g sugar
225g all-purpose flour
100g chocolate chips (I use a mix of about 70g dark chocolate chips and 30g white chocolate chips)

Melt the butter and chocolate together over low heat this completely melted.

Cool the mix down and in the meanwhile preheat the oven to 180ÂșC.

Add the 4 eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.

Add the vanilla and salt (I use salted butter and just a tiny pinch of salt) and sugar and mix well.

Add the flour and mix till incorporated.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Line a baking dish with aluminium foil, leaving an overhang on all sides. This makes is easy to get the brownies out of the pan and also makes cleaning a cinch.

Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 25 minutes. Do not overbake. When you see some cracks appearing on the top of the batter, you'll know they are done.

Cool completely and cut into pieces.

    So difficult being patient while waiting for them to cool though, isn't it? I've taken to popping them in the freezer just to speed the process up when I know I can't wait. :) They look delicious!
