Tuesdays with Dorie {Rewind}—Quintuple Chocolate Brownies

Quintuple Chocolate BrowniesI'm slowly working through the recipes I missed before I joined Tuesdays with Dorie and Week 2 of TWD was all about chocolate! Four types of chocolate, in fact. In a brownie. {Actually, the recipe called for 3 ounces of unsweetened chocolate, but I used semi-sweet instead, and it turned out great!}
All I really need is love but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt!

4 types of chocolate
Using the best chocolate I could find (Callebaut) made these brownies taste even better. As well, the crunch from the pecans that I used was a nice contrast to the chocolate.

Quintuple Chocolate BrowniesTasting Notes
They were the best brownies I've ever tasted! And my nephew and daughters had to earn their brownie by posing for some food photography! In the end, they thought it was worth it! {However, one picked off all the chocolate-coated purple sunflower seeds and gave them to me. Another didn't like the nuts, but I had only put nuts in half the batch so she hunted for one without the offending ingredient. And another wanted hers without frosting! Besides that, they were a huge hit!}

I've been meaning to get around to this recipe, and you've definitely inspired me...I'm brownie bakin' this weekend!

I totally agree on not skimping on using good chocolate, as it definitely makes a huge difference.
