  • In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, cocoa, salt, baking powder, espresso powder and vanilla. Beat at medium speed for about 4 minutes.
  • Melt the butter and sugar in a saucepan over low heat until the mixture becomes shiny, but not bubbly, about 110°F/120°F.
  • Pour the hot butter/sugar mixture into the egg/cocoa mixture and mix on low speed until smooth.
  • Add the flour and mix until smooth.
  • At this point, turn the oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 9" x 13" pan.
  • Wait at least 20 minutes* and then gently fold in chocolate chips.
  • Spoon the batter into the greased pan.
  • Bake for about 35-38 minutes, or until a tester (fork, knife, toothpick) inserted into center comes out clean. Brownies should be set on the edges and the center should be very moist, but not raw.
  • Let cool before cutting.


Heating the butter/sugar to 110°F/120°F will produce a shiny, flaky top crust.
*If you want the chocolate chips to melt into the brownies, don't wait the 20 minutes and preheat the oven at the start of the preparation.
