Spilling the Cocoa Beans

Recently, Cate, at Sweetnicks, asked reader's to divulge their favorite guilty foodie pleasure. I had to claim that mine were these brownies. My original intent was to keep this recipe with me to the grave, but as I've already given this recipe away to insistent friends, I figure it's fair game for food blogging.


1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup unsalted butter
4 oz unsweetened chocolate
2 Tbsp espresso or strong coffee
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup coconut flakes

Grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch pan.
In small bowl, combine salt, flour, cocoa.
In medium bowl, beat sugar and eggs until light.
Meanwhile, melt butter and chocolate slowly.
Drizzle melted chocolate into egg mixture, while stirring. Add espresso. Fold in flour mixture, then coconut, and then chocolate chips.
Pour into pan and bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes, until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.

Unfit for virtuous citizens, eh? That is very interesting, considering that the Swiss are now known for chocolate.
