I have had these brownies on my "to bake" list for a few weeks. When I came home from work one afternoon, I decided I had put them off long enough. I'm so glad I whipped these up because they were a perfect end to my day!
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pan
4 oz unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tbsp instant espresso powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup semisweet morsels
Preheat oven to 325°. Butter a 9-inch square baking pan, line bottom with parchment paper, and coat paper with butter; set aside.
In a medium heatproof bowl, combine butter and unsweetened chocolate. Place over a saucepan of simmering water until completely melted, stirring occasionally. Let cool slightly. Whisk in sugar, espresso powder, vanilla, and eggs.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add chocolate mixture to dry ingredients, and stir until just combined (do not overmix). Fold in chocolate chips.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out slightly wet. (Be careful not to overbake.) Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Remove from pan. Cut into 16 squares, wiping the knife blade clean after each cut. Serve and enjoy!
