Quintuple Chocolate Brownies


I have news for you.

There is such a thing as too much chocolate.

I know, I never would have believed it could be true but it is. I'm not sure if it was the milk or white chocolate (or maybe the combination) that sent these over the top, but I could only take a tiny corner. Two bites. People who I relayed this to looked at me like I was an alien life form, and told me I was crazy. Just another day at the office.

These brownies, from Baking From My Home to Yours, contain cocoa powder, unsweetened chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate chips and a white chocolate glaze.

Bottom line, if you like milk chocolate and sweet brownies, you'll love these. If not, I would suggest replacing the milk chocolate chips with semisweet or even bittersweet, and forgoing the white chocolate glaze entirely. They'd be quadruple chocolate if you did that, which is still pretty special.


I was feeling lazy and didn't toast the walnuts and the world didn't end. At least not yet. But I would recommend toasting the nuts, unless you're trying to bang out as many recipes as you can so you can write lots of posts during your non-existent down time at a conference. Like I am.

You can find the recipe all over the blogosphere, or you can find it in the original post when these were picked for TWD here.

Too much chocolate??? Nooooo!!! Never!! But I must admit I can only eat a small piece of these brownies too :)

This is a TWD recipe I missed. I have enjoyed all of her brownie recipes so far. Looks like I better make it and have a bite.
I agree, the world still turns when nuts are not toasted, but toasting nuts takes one to a different world!

Well, Leslie, if the world does end, the last thing I'll be thinking about is how you didn't toast the walnuts!

I don't think I made this recipe for TWD - they do look quite over-the top.

I really liked these brownies when I made them a long time ago, but I decided no white chocolate glaze next time. And why bother with milk chocolate? I hope that your conference is productive, as far a writing blog posts goes!!

Loved the writing in this post! I would definitely have to unsweetened these a bit.

Di said...

Definitely no need for white chocolate. =) It's not usually too much chocolate that gets me, it's too much sweet chocolate. These weren't one of my favorite TWD brownies, but that's okay, since there are lots of others. =)

Wow, that sounds really indulgent. I have never come across anything with too much chocolate (my husband has a different opinion on that) so this might be it. I'm sure it would work w/o the walnuts too.

TOO MUCH CHOCOLATE!!?? NOOOOO!!

Actually, yes, but only leave out the white chocolate next time. Or mayb replace with a chocolate ganache.

BUT they were awfully good....

I am not a brownie person. But I think this will be the first brownie that I will bake :)
