Oiishi Brownies

When found this recipe on a friend’s blog I knew that they would be incredible by just reading it. I love nuts, but not everyone in my seminary class likes them. I left the nuts out on purpose. I knew that once these were in my kitchen I wouldn’t be able to resist the temptation to eat more than one. I decided to eat one, let Rick eat one or two and then take the rest to seminary this morning. These are incredibly rich, moist, and oiishi (Japanese for delicious) brownies. I got up this morning and put a cute napkin on a plate and then piled on the brownies. Then I left them home!

Yikes!!! I have a full 9″X13″ pan of brownies minus 2 3 sitting on a plate in the kitchen. They are actually taunting me. “We are soooo yummy come in here and eat some more of us!!!!” I am leaving now so I don’t have to listen to them until I figure out how to get rid of them humanely. Maybe I can give them away to friends in pairs, anymore than that could possibly kill someone since they are so rich.

I am keeping the recipe, but it will be filed with the Nigella peanut butter and chocolate squares under recipes to make only when you have a crowd to share with. They really are delicious.


3/4 pound butter, melted
2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided use (I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips)
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder
5 eggs
2 cups brown sugar
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch salt
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup nuts (pecans or walnuts), chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13-inch pan.

Melt butter in a saucepan. Add 1 3/4 cups chocolate chips and stir until melted. Add melted mixture to cocoa in a bowl and combine. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, whip eggs with brown sugar.

Mix flour with baking powder and salt. Add this dry mixture to egg/ brown sugar mixture. Mix in the butter-chocolate mixture. Stir in the remaining 3/4 cup chocolate chips and nuts. (Some nuts and chocolate chips may be saved to sprinkle on top of the brownies before baking.) Spread batter into a prepared pan.

Bake for 25 minutes in a 350 degree F oven. Cool before slicing.
