1 pound (4 sticks) unsalted butter

6 ounces unsweetened chocolate

6 large eggs

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

2 1/4 cups sugar

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon salt

3 cups chopped walnuts (option.)

1 cup shredded coconut (option)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 12x18 inch pan. Set aside.

In a double boiler, melt the butter, 1 pound of the chocolate chips, and the unsweetened

chocolate until smooth.

Cool to room temperature.

Combine, but do not whisk the eggs, , vanilla and sugar. Stir in the cooled

chocolate mixture. Set aside

Sift together the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix into the batter.

Finally, fold in the other cup of chocolate,walnuts, etc.. Pour into the greased pan.

Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a tester comes out just clean. Don't over bake.

Cool thoroughly, cut into squares and enjoy!

Here's a recipe using Guinness:


1 cup flour

3/4 cup Hershey's cocoa powder - or any unsweetened cocoa powder.

1/4 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons butter (its best to leave this out of the fridge for a while to make it easy to use)

8 ounces dark bittersweet chocolate,

3/4 cup chocolate chips (any variety - you could add nuts as well here)

4 large eggs

1 cup sugar (if you have confectionary sugar, this works better)

1-1/4 cups Guinness

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cooking instructions

Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Find a 9 x 13 non stick baking pan (or line it with foil, or spread some butter over surface to stop brownies from sticking).

Mix flour, cocoa powder and salt together in a bowl.

Melt butter, bittersweet chocolate and chocolate chips together - I use a bowl over a pan of bowling water - you probably need to keep stirring.

Beat eggs until fluffy and add melted chocolate - continue to beat until well mixed (I used the mixer on a medium to high setting).

Mix in the flour mixture, and the Guinness - drop the semi-sweet chocolate chips evenly on top. (Don't worry if the batter seems thin).

Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes in the center of the oven - I test to see if they are cooked by putting a knife, or fork into the center - if it comes out clean then the brownies are done.
