Y'all are a mess
I'm mulling it over....okay!
PMS Brownies or The Brownies That Will Cure Anything
1 pound butter
8 oz German chocolate
8 oz milk chocolate
6 oz semisweet chocolate (can use chips in a pinch)
6 ounces dark chocolate (the darker the better)
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
6 jumbo eggs
3 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups chopped pecans (I usually mix half and half with hazelnuts if I can find them. Macadamias are to die for too!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter and flour a 11 x 17 x 1-inch baking sheet. (or just use a jellyroll pan) Line the pan with parchment paper and spray the paper with cooking spray.
Grate all the chocolates (they will melt better this way) Put the butter, all chocolate except the chips and the cream in a double boiler and melt everyone together. 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.
Meanwhile, in another bowl, mix together 1 cup of flour, the baking powder, and salt. Add to the cooled chocolate mixture. Toss the walnuts and 6 ounces of chocolate chips in a medium bowl with 1/4 cup of flour, then add them to the chocolate batter. (Here I sometimes add a cup or more of diced up dried tart cherries.) Pour into the baking sheet.
Bake for 35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool thoroughly, refrigerate, and cut.
