Triple chocolate brownies

  • 1 1/4 cup (160 g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons pure unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 11 1/2 oz. (325 g) dark chocolate
  • 1 cup (230 g) butter
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon (120 g) brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup (350 g) regular sugar
  • 5 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 7 oz. (200 g) large white chocolate chunks
  • 3 1/2 oz. (100 g) walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350 ˚F (180 ˚C).

Put the dark chocolate and butter into a separate bowl. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir until everything has melted.

Turn off the heat but leave the bowl where it is.

Add both sugars to the melted chocolate mixture, stir until well blended.

Now take the bowl off the heat.

Add the eggs and stir until everything is well blended. It’s important not to overmix, or you’ll end up with chocolate cake instead of brownies!

Stir in the flour/cocoa powder mixture.

Pour the mixture into a cake pan, I use a 6 x 8-inch (15 x 20 cm) pan here, but a 7 x 10-inch (18 x 26 cm) pan will work, too.

(The smaller the pan, the taller the brownies.)

Bake for about 30 minutes, no longer.

Leave to cool completely, then place in the freezer for 1 hour 30 minutes.

Chocolate ganache

  • 1/2 cup (100 ml) milk
  • 1/2 cup (100 ml) corn syrup
  • 14 oz. (400 g) dark chocolate

Put the chocolate into a bowl.

Heat the milk, cream and syrup, then pour it over the chocolate.

Leave for a few minutes before stirring until smooth.
