Makes 24 large brownies

Preheat oven to 350°F

Step 1

In a large saucepan, combine and melt the following ingredients over low heat while stirring. When melted, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly

16 oz. of good semi-sweet chocolate
2 tablespoons butter
14 oz. can condensed milk

Step 2

1/2 pound of butter (2 sticks)
2 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

Melt butter and then stir in sugar until well combined. Add to the chocolate mixture from Step 1.

Step 3

2 extra-large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon coffee extract (optional, but highly recommended)
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour

Beat in the eggs one at a time and then add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Fold 3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts into the mixture (optional).

Turn mixture into lightly oiled 13x9x2 inch baking pan and cook for 30-35 minutes. A cake tester will NOT come out clean!
