BWD #6 Quintuple Chocolate Brownies....or Death by Chocolate?

This one's for you, Dad---

  • cocoa powder
  • bittersweet chocolate
  • unsweetened chocolate
  • milk chocolate
  • white chocolate
Did I miss anything?  Oh...yes.  Mine, currently, are simply Quadruple Chocolate Brownies.  Sorry for the delay!  Between summer classes, a traveling husband, and my number one taste-tester out of commission, I will be drizzling the white chocolate in the morning for the MIL to take to her fellow volunteer friends. I need an excuse to bake? 

Once the method.  Life is so much easier not having to break out the electric hand-mixer!

I have to confess, I did take some liberties with this recipe.  We don't have coffee in the house anymore, so I mixed up a little instant espresso (it seems like I have that in a few recipes outside of DG) and used that in lieu of the coffee.  I ended up using pecans, on the off chance that my FIL will try these, but I'm pretty sure that he's going to pass on these!

Chopping up the chocolate makes the melting soooo much easier.

Whisking in the sugar, or rather, muscling in the sugar once the chocolate has cooled a bit.

Dry goods---cocoa powder, salt, flour---mixed in with a rubber spatula and finished with a cup of milk chocolate chips and pecans.

Voila!  Minus the white chocolate...tonight.  Gooey white chocolate+late night=postponed!

And have your own copy of the book now.  No excuses!  Break it in!


  1. I'm sure these were great with pecans! How did you MIL like them?

    Thanks for baking along this week!

  2. I'm finishing up my white chocolate part this morning too (husband's taking it to work.) Hope you get a chance to have a bite— it IS a most delicious Death By Chocolate!

  3. I was thinking the same thing! These SHOULD be called death by chocolate brownies, hehehhe. By the way, the first time I made these, I used a mixture of pecans and walnuts. The kids loved those more. Hope your MIL enjoyed them!

    Thanks for baking along this week :)
