quintuple chocolate brownies

Quintuple–that’s five!  I’m sure you know that and I’m not trying to insult your intelligence, but I myself am still a bit shocked that five types of chocolate can fit into a single brownie.  Somehow, in one little square, there is room for cocoa powder and unsweetened, bittersweet, milk and white chocolates. 

Talk about a fudgy brownie…I think this one may actually be fudge!  If that white chocolate glaze looks I laid it on a little thick, well umm, that’s because I did.  I thought the original amount seemed a little thin so I added a bit more white chocolate and a bit more cream, and suddenly I had a thick slick of icing!

These brownies are so dangerously good, that I’d feel guilty (in many ways) keeping them to myself.  Jenny from All Things Edible has a beautiful new home, and I’m going to bring them to her housewarming party!

This was Brown Eyed Baker Michelle’s TWD pick shortly before I joined the group, about a year ago.  For the recipe, look in Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan  (she also has it here on NPR’s website) or read Michelle’s post.
