Frozen Hot Chocolate Brownies

I made this for a church activity last night.  They are the most indulgent thing I know how to make.  We were instructed to bring a "treat" along with its recipe for girls who are graduating from high school and heading out into the wide world soon.  I figured there is no better way to win friends and influence people than with a million calorie brownie.


Frozen Hot Chocolate Brownies


  • 26 TBSP butter
  • 12 oz bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
  • 6 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 TBSP Vanilla
  • 2 cups flour (all-purpose or pastry)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips or chocolate buttons
  • Line a 9x11 baking dish with parchment paper
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F with rack in center
  • Melt the butter and chocolate together in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time.  Stop heating when about 85% melted.  Residual heat will take care of the rest.
  • While chocolate mixture cools and finishes melting, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla together in a large bowl.
  • While beating egg mixture (in stand mixer or with hand mixer) slowly add chocolate mixture.  You don't want the eggs to cook (yet) so you are tempering it.
  • In another bowl whisk the flour and salt together.
  • Fold the flour mixture into the chocolate/egg mixture with a rubber spatula.
  • Stir Chocolate chips/buttons in once flour is incorporated.
  • Pour into prepared pan, smooth top and bake about 25 minutes, until top of brownies lightens in color
  • Allow them to cool completely in the pan, then move pan to fridge or freezer.
  • Once chilled through, lift from pan with the parchment paper and transfer to a cutting board to cut into individual servings.  Serve and store cold for best texture.
