  • 2 sticks unsalted butter cut into slices
  • 8 oz. unsweetened bakers chocolate broken up into small pieces
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1.5 cups light brown sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder optional
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line an 9" x 13" pan with lightly greased parchment paper. .
  • Place the butter and unsweetened bakers chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir and heat in 30 second intervals until completely melted. Set aside.
  • Use a stand or electric mixer to beat the eggs and granulated sugar and light brown sugar on high speed for 10 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and add the vanilla extract and chocolate mixture until well combined. Turn the mixer off, add the flour and salt and then beat on low speed until just combined.
  • Use a spatula to fold in the chocolate chips and scrape the sides of the bowl. Pour the mixture into the baking pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle on more chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. The edges should be done and the center should look a little under-baked.
  • Remove and let cool on a heat-safe surface for 15-20 minutes before cutting into bars.


  • Store these brownies in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 7 days.
  • Freeze in a plastic bag for up to 3 months.
