454g (1 lb) dark chocolate (about 1 1/2 big bars you buy in the baking section of the grocery store)
1 c milk chocolate pieces (semi sweet chocolate chips work fine here) + 1/4 c flour
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tbsp. vanilla
2 c sugar
1/4 c instant coffee
1 c flour (substitute rice flour for gluten free)
3 tsp baking powder
handful walnuts (about 1 cup), chopped
Heat oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet (with sides) with parchment paper.
In a big stainless steel bowl, melt butter and dark chocolate in the microwave (yes, you read it right...microwave...as long as it is stainless steel, it can go in the microwave). Heat for 2 minutes on high and stir until all is melted and smooth.
In another bowl, combine eggs, coffee, vanilla and sugar. Whisk vigorously until combined. Add to chocolate and butter mixture and whisk again....it should be oh soooo chocolatey!
In yet another small bowl (I know, I hate washing dishes too, but this will be worth it), combine flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk (or sift through a sieve) and add to chocolate...blend again. In another (yes, another) bowl, mix chocolate chips (or milk chocolate) with the 1/4 flour and add to mixture; stir again.
Pour into pan and smooth out. Sprinkle walnut over top and bake in oven for 30 minutes (don't overcook or you will lose the fudgy goodness!). Remove from over...slice a big chunk...poor a BIG glass of milk and enjoy every bite!
