Chocolate Chocolate Chip Brownies

Chocolate Chip BrowniesThis recipe makes a huge batch of rich dense brownies!  I like it because it’s versatile too!  You can add just about anything to the batter from chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut, peanut butter chips and so on.   It’s perfect for a family or other large gathering!


1 pound (4 sticks) butter

1 pound plus 12 ounces semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips

6 ounces unsweetened chocolate

6 extra-large eggs

2 tablespoons vanilla

2 1/4 cups organic sugar

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups chopped walnuts if using

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a very large pan double the size of a 9×13 or a 12 x 18 x 1-inch baking sheet.  Melt together the butter, 1 pound chocolate chips and unsweetened chocolate in a large sauce pan over medium low heat.  Cool slightly.  In a large electric bowl fitted with a paddle attachment mix together the eggs, vanilla and sugar.  Gradually add the chocolate mixture until just combined.  Add 1 cup of flour and baking powder and salt.  With the remaining 1/4 cup flour toss the chocolate chips and fold into the batter with the walnuts if using.  Pour into pan or baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Tap the pan a few times and bake for another 15 minutes until done and a toothpick comes out clean.  Allow to cool, refrigerate and cut before serving.
