Outrageous Brownies
 
makes 20 large brownies 
 
inspiration for this recipe came from the chocolate glob in the soho 
charcuterie cookbook published by william morrow in 1982. in its 
heyday, the soho charcuterie was the cutting edge of new york 
restaurants. the giant confection was a blob of chocolate dough filled 
with chocolate chips and nuts. i though i could make a brownie with 
almost the same formula. theymve been flying out the door for fifteen 
years! 
 
1 lb.  unsalted butter
1 lb.  plus 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
6 oz.  bitter chocolate
6   extralarge eggs
3 Tbsp  instant coffee granules
2 Tbsp  pure vanilla extract
2-1/4 cup  sugar
1-1/4 cup  all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp  baking powder
1 tsp  salt
3 cup  chopped walnuts
  preheat the oven to 350 degrees f.
 
butter and flour a 12 x 18 x 1-inch baking sheet. 
 
melt together the butter, 1 pound of the chocolate chips, and the 
bitter chocolate in a medium bowl over simmering water. allow to cool 
slightly. in a large bowl, stir (do not beat) together the eggs, 
coffee granules, vanilla, and sugar. stir the warm chocolate mixture 
into the egg mixture and allow to cool to room temperature. 
 
in a medium bowl, sift together 1 cup of flour, the baking powder, and 
salt. add to the cooled chocolate mixture. toss the walnuts and 12 
ounces of chocolate chips in a medium bowl with 1/4 cup flour, then 
add them to the chocolate batter. pour onto the baking sheet. 
 
bake for 20 minutes, then rap the baking sheet against the oven self 
to force the air to escape from between the pan and the brownie dough. 
bake for about 15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. do not 
overbake! allow to cool thoroughly, refrigerate, and cut into 20 large 
squares. 
 
notes: flouring the chips and walnuts keeps them for sinking to the 
bottom. it is very important to allow the batter to cool well before 
adding the chocolate chips, or the chips will melt and ruin the 
brownies. this recipe can be baked up to a week in advance, wrapped in 
plastic, and refrigerated.
