Intense Chocolate Brownies - Fat Witch Bakery

Chelsea Market has always been one of my favorite places in New York City.  From the beginning, long before the High Line, I have been a huge fan of Amy's Bread, Sarabeth's and Fat Witch Bakery.

The brownies from Fat Witch are delicious.  Luckily in 2010 Patricia Helding decided to share some of her recipes.  She has also recently released Fat Witch Bake Sale.

The following recipe is adapted from Fat Witch Brownies.  If you love brownies, I highly recommend this book!  Some of the tempting recipes include Triple Chocolate Brownies, Caramel Witches, Pecan Bars, Lemon Cheesecake Brownies and Butterscotch Bars.

Intense Chocolate Brownies

3/4 cup butter
7 oz bittersweet chocolate, at least 70% cocoa broken into small pieces
2 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 t vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt

Melt the butter and chocolate.  Cool.

Mix the eggs and sugars until well blended.  Add the vanilla and chocolate.

Measure the flour and salt and then sift together into the batter.

Spread into a 9x9 pan.  Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Cool before cutting the brownies into 9 pieces.  Wrap each piece in plastic wrap and store in an air tight container.
