Recipe by Connie K
READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat oven to 350F; Lightly grease and 8-inch square pan with butter or vegetable oil.
  • Melt the 3 1/2 ounces of chocolate and 12 T butter in the top of a double boiler placed over simmering water; Cool the mixture for 5 minutes; Place 1 1/2 cups sugar in a medium-sized mixing bowl and pour in the chocolate mixture; Using an electric mixer on medium speed, mix until blended, about 25 seconds; Scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula.
  • Add the vanilla; With the mixer on medium-low speed, add the eggs one at a time, blending after each addition until the yolk is broken and dispersed, about 10 seconds; Scrape the bowl after the last egg and blend until velvety, about 15 more seconds.
  • Add the flour on low speed and mix for 20 seconds; finish the mixing by hand, being certain to mix in any flour at the bottom of the bowl; Stir in 1/2 cup of the nuts.
  • Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan and sprinkle the remaining 2 T of nuts over the top.
  • Bake the brownies on the center oven rack until a thin crust forms on top and a tester inserted in the center comes out with a moist crumb, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a rack to cool for 1 hour before cutting the brownies; Serve the next day (it takes a day for the flavor to set) and don't forget the tall glass of milk.
  • For the Chocolate Orgasms, do not cut the brownies, but allow them to cool completely.
  • The prepare the frosting, melt the 1 1/2 ounces of chocolate in the top of a double boiler placed over simmering water.
  • Pour the evaporated milk into an electric blender and add the sugar and the melted chocolate; Blend the frosting on medium-low speed until it thickens, about 50 seconds (the sound of the machine will change when this process occurs).
  • Using a frosting spatula, spread the frosting evenly over the surface of the cooled brownies and allow them to sit for 1 hour before cutting.
