Here is a recipe for Outrageous Brownies....

You can see why they are called "outrageous" brownies by containing a whole pound of butter and a mere 1 1/4 cups of flour, not to mention six ounces of bittersweet chocolate and one pound plus 12 ounces of chocolate chips. The entire recipe follows below. You better be in the mood for something super chocolatey to make these! They are quite rich and well...OUTRAGEOUS!

Outrageous Brownies

1 pound unsalted butter

1 pound + 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

6 ounce bittersweet chocolate*

6 extra large eggs (large works just as good)

3 TBSP instant coffee granules

2 TBSP vanilla extract

2 1/4 cup sugar

1 1/4 cup all- purpose flour

1 TBSP baking powder

1 tsp salt

3 cups chopped nuts

Spray and flour a 12 x 18 x 1" baking sheet. Melt together butter, 1 pound of chocolate chips and bittersweet chocolate in medium bowl over simmering water. Allow to cool slightly. In a large bowl, stir together eggs, coffee, vanilla and sugar. Stir in the warm chocolate mixture into egg mixture & allow to cool to room temperature. In medium bowl, sift together 1 cup flour, baking powder & salt. Add to chocolate mixture. Toss walnuts & chocolate chips in 1/4 cup flour, then add to chocolate batter. Pour into baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes, then rap baking sheet against oven shelf. Bake about 15 more minuets or until toothpick comes out clean.

* To substitute bittersweet chocolate use 1 TBSP butter & 3 TBSP Cocoa = 1 oz. bittersweet chocolate. For 6oz. use 6 TBSP Butter & 18 TBSP Cocoa.

You may want to eat just a small piece or half a brownie to start with. They are not for the wimpy chocolate eater. Enjoy!
