Dorie's Quintuple chocolate brownies
As you know, if you have read my earlier posts, I have a few recipes to catch up on that the TWD group baked before I joined them. One of them is this quadruple chocolate brownie which I made a couple of weeks ago. It is quintuple chocolate because it has three kinds of dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate in it. The dark chocolate and bittersweet are melted, the milk chocolate is in chunks and the white chocolate is used for a glaze like topping.
I have a few really good brownie recipes, and I am definitely adding this one to the list. I didn’t use the two different kinds of dark chocolate (I used Whittakers 70% cocoa solids) and I was a bit naughty and used white chocolate melts instead of lovely white chocolate for the topping. I used good old cadburys for the milk chocolate chunks that were dispersed throughout the brownie. The brownie had great texture – lovely and moist and I loved the milk chocolate chunks throughout. It also had nuts in it – I used walnuts and they added extra crunch which was great!
The only thing that I would say about these brownie is that the white chocolate is a glaze rather than a layer of chocolate. Dorie said it was a glaze, but the photo in the book indicated that it was more of a layer! Still, I am not disappointed – like all the Dorie recipes I have tried this brownie is divine!
The other exciting thing I have to report is that I know of two other people who have bought Dorie’s book since reading about it on my blog!!!! I am always surprised, delighted and amazed when I hear about people I don’t even know reading my blog!!!
