Triple Chocolate Brownies

It is so hot outside, I can't even think about turning on the oven to whip up a new creation.  So here's an old favorite with a new little twist.

We were invited over to a friend's house to swim and cool off.  I received the invite early enough in the day, I was able to bake for a just a bit.  I went back to an old favorite, fudgy brownies, but made them triple chocolate fudgy brownies.

It was simple enough to do. I kept the same basic brownie recipe and added three different chocolate chips to it.  They were a hit, and the only unhealthy snack at the swim date.  I did have a little guilt bringing out the treat while everyone else had carrots or fruit. Oh well, that's what summer is for; little treats!

recipe (serves 12)

1 stick of butter
1 c. flour
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
8 oz. chocolate (I used milk chocolate chips)
1 1/4 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
add ins: 1/2 c. each of white, milk, and semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter, cocoa powder, and 8 oz. chocolate chips over a double boiler. Set aside to cool a bit. Cream sugar and eggs until fluffy. Slowly add the cooled chocolate mixture and stir to combine. Add dry ingredients until just mixed. Fold in three different kinds of chocolate chips. Bake in a greased 9x9 pan for 42 to 45 minutes. Be careful not to over bake. The edges will be slightly crispy but the center should be a little soft.
