Triple Chocolate Chunk Brownies

Waaaay back in July, I was invited to attend a Chocolate Tasting and Luncheon at the French Culinary Institute in celebration of the cameo role of Scharffen Berger® chocolate in the motion picture Julie & Julia. Unfortunately, the luncheon was held just before I was let go from my job and I couldn't break away in the middle of the day to attend. It just killed me knowing that skipping the event meant skipping my chance to meet world-renowned master chef Jacques P├ępin and the founder of Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker John Scharffenberger.

Thanks to a little bit of quick-thinking on my part, I arranged to have some chocolate samples sent to me after the luncheon so I could develop a recipe that featured the chocolate and, hopefully, blog about the results. When a couple of weeks went by without a sign of a package, I figured they had run out of samples. But I received an email from my former employer that a package had arrived for me after my last day with the company. Eureeka! They hadn't forgotten to send the chocolate and it arrived when I needed it the most.

Of course, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with the chocolate when I got my hands on the package -- brownies. Ooey, gooey, chocolatey brownies. And, oh my goodness, these brownies did not disappoint. Pair one or two of these bad boys with a tall glass of cold milk and you can't go wrong!
