quintuple chocolate brownies {bwd}

Chocoholics, rejoice! This delectable brownie, chock-full with FIVE chocolates, will surely satiate that mid-afternoon (or for me- early morning) craving for a chocolatey treat.

Did you try guessing the five chocolates going into this recipe?  I'm sure you were right with these answers:

unsweetened cocoa powder

unsweetened chocolate

bittersweet chocolate

milk chocolate chips

white chocolate

After melting the butter and chocolate, I added eggs and vanilla, which formed a "smooth and glossy batter."

The knife test after 35 minutes in the oven yielded "thick streaks."I don't know about you, but I am always paranoid about under/overbaking brownies.

Being unsure about the white chocolate layer, I added it to only half the batch. The layer was too thin, and ended up like a glaze rather than a thick icing. Imagining creme anglaise, I think this makes an excellent dessert brownie. Though my personal preference is the brownie without the white chocolate, both are delicious. This is a rich, cakey, über-chocolatey flavored brownie. 

The recipe is found at Shahieda's blog, Decadent Delectables, and you can see the other brownies made by my baking buddies over at Baking With Dorie.
