Amber’s Super Secret (Not anymore) Solstice Brownies


As promised, this Recipe Thursday is off the charts and caked with awesomeness!  Awesomeness in the form of sugar, chocolate and a really rad lady named Amber Billingsley! If you aren’t familiar with Amber, she is the creative baking guru at 3 Cups Coffee. From her mouth-watering gelato to her brownies, whatever this lady touches, turns to the most insane delectableness. And as if she weren’t cool enough, she chose to create her brownies using OUR CHOCOLATE!  And if that wasn’t the icing on the cake for coolness, Amber has so graciously agreed to share her recipe for these brownies with all of you!

I guess I should get on with it and let you have that recipe….


Solstice Chocolate Brownies

Yield 16

12 OZ Solstice Chocolate, I (Amber) use Madagascar

1 LB Unsalted Butter

6 Large Room Temperature Eggs

1 LB Granulated Sugar

1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher Salt

Add 1 LB sifted flour

Melt Chocolate and butter over double broiler, stirring occasionally until totally smooth.

Meanwhile, in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment mix eggs, sugar, vanilla extract & salt, on Med-High speed until fluffy and pale (this will take about 10 minutes).

When chocolate and butter mixture is melted and eggy mixture is fluffy turn mixture speed to low and slowly add melted chocolate. Mix until combined.

Add sifted flour, mix by hand with a rubber spatula until no egg white streaks remain.

Coat a stainless steel 2″ high half hotel pan with pan spray, line bottom with parchment paper, and pour batter into pan, smoothing top.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until opaque and top souffles with a slight crack around perimeter of pan. Don’t bother with a toothpick test because it should be gooey and fudgy.

Let cool, then cover and leave to rest in refrigerator until completely set, at least 8 hours.

Turn out on cutting board and cut. Let come to room temperature before serving.

Enjoy! Let us know if you end up making these and make sure to visit Amber and 3 Cups Coffee!

I mean come on! Just look at those beauties!
