Barefoot Contessa's Brownies

These brownies are to die for! (I mean you literally might die from a heart attack--either from the butter coursing through your veins or just from sheer delight!!!)

Melt and cool 6 oz unsweetened chocolate, 1 pound butter, and 1 pound semi-sweet chocolate. Set aside.
Mix:
6 eggs
2-3 T coffee granules (She says it richens up the chocolate flavor)
2 T vanilla
2 1/4 C sugar
Whisk together. Add chocolate mixture.
Sift:
1 C flour
1 T baking powder
1 t salt
Fold into chocolate mixture.

Stir in 12 oz chocolate chips, and 3 C walnuts (I used 1 1/2 C toasted almonds cuz Chris hates walnuts). Add a little flour to the chips and nuts before adding to the mix, so they won't sink to the bottom of pan. I also leave them plain and that is good, too.

Pour into buttered and floured 13x17 (it's the one just bigger than a jelly roll) cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Halfway through baking, rap pan on oven rack to get the air bubbles out. Cool, and refrigerate before cutting and serving!
