Triple Chocolate Toffee Brownies I One Lovely LifeOops.

That’s about all I can say for myself. These brownies are embarrassing.

In the best way.

Why so embarassing?

Well, folks, we’re talking about a LOT of chocolate. And toffee bits. Oh, and butter.

But I’m not kidding when I tell you these are amazing. AMAZING. Fudgy, decadent, incredible. Because of all that goodness, they’re also very, very rich, so an 8×8 makes 16-20 brownies at least. A small square will send you into a close-your-eyes-and-groan-out-loud-choco-nirvana.

The recipe is pretty straight-forward. We’ve made it a few times now and LOVED it. I even brought these cut up into bite-sized pieces to my friend Collette’s fondue/white elephant party. They were made even more incredible by both chocolate and caramel fondue.

I know they’d be divine in ice cream, and I may or may not be able to tell you from experience that they’re also delicious frozen, from the fridge, at room temperature, or even slightly warm.

Triple Chocolate Toffee Brownies
 
Serves: 16-20 (at least)
Ingredients
  • 8 Tbsp butter
  • 1½c semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli semi-sweet)
  • ½c brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1c flour
  • 1c bittersweet chocolate chips or chunks (I used Ghiradelli 60% bittersweet chips)
  • 1 (8oz) package Heath milk chocolate toffee bits
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips over medium-low heat until smooth.
  2. Turn off heat and stir in brown sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well to incorporate after each addition. Stir in vanilla and salt.
  3. Add flour and stir until about half-incorporated. Add bittersweet chocolate chips and toffee bits and continue folding them in until the flour is just incorporated.
  4. Pour batter into an 8×8″ baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray and lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until brownies are just set. Allow to cool completely before slicing.
Notes
If you need even slices, refrigerating them for 20-30 minutes after they’ve cooled makes them slice perfectly.

Emily they look devine!

I have just been looking back through your archives in search of a flourless chocolate cake/chocolate valentino recipe I was sure was one of yours, but I can’t find it. Have I gone mad and misremembered where I found it or have you taken it down? Just wondering if you could help :) xxx

Triple chocolate sounds sinful in the best way possible and the addition of toffee is just magical!

These sounds amazing, Emily! And, um, I like the sound of loads of chocolate & butter. :D I’ll bet they’d be cute with cake-pop sticks.
