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.

  2. Yup, it's so much better without the white chocolate. I just had a small serving after scraping the frosting off ;-)
