Number of Servings: 1

Triple-Chocolate Penuche Brownies

6 ounces fine-quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped (chips are okay)
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1½ sticks unsalted butter, softened
1½ cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Penuche Frosting

½ stick unsalted butter, softened
½ cup light brown sugar, packed
¼ cup milk

Prepare a 13 by 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper or tin foil so that the sides and bottom are covered. Spray with Pam or butter the surface of the paper/foil. This will make it super easy to remove the brownies later. If you don't have parchment paper or tin foil, just thoroughly butter and flour the pan, paying extra attention to the corners.

In a metal bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, melt the bittersweet chocolate and the unsweetened chocolate with the butter, stirring until the mixture is smooth. Remove the bowl from the heat and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes. Stir in sugar and vanilla.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Crack the eggs into a separate bowl and whisk with a fork, scrambled egg style. Pour the egg mixture into the bowl, a little at at time, stirring well after each addition.

Stir in the salt and the flour, stirring until the mixture is just combined. Add the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into the pan, smooth out the top, and bake the mixture in the middle of a preheated 350°F oven for 25 minutes, or until a tester comes out with crumbs adhering to it. Remove from the oven and wait 5 minutes for it cool slightly. Remove the brownies from the pan using the paper or foil and place on a large cutting board or larger cookie sheet.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. When it's fully melted, add the brown sugar and continue to mix constantly. When the mixture is well combined, add the milk and continuing stir. Increase the heat to medium-high, all the while, stirring the caramel. Let the mixture come to boil for 3 minutes.

Hover the saucepan a bit high over the brownies so that you get a long ribbon of caramel flowing from the pan. Slowly pour the mixture over the brownies in a zig-zag fashion, working from one side to the other, being sure not to cover the entire surface of the brownies with the caramel (you want to see some of the chocolate brownies peeking through the surface).

Let the brownies and penuche cool completely before cutting.

Yield: 24 brownies, although it really depends on how big you cut them.
