• 2 large eggs + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
• 2/3 cup (133g) sugar
• 8 tablespoons (113g) salted butter
• 4 ounces (114g) semi-sweet chocolate bar, coarsely chopped
• 4 ounces (114g) dark chocolate bar (70-80% cocoa), coarsely chopped


➊ Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease or line an 8x8 inch square pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper with overhang on the sides. Set aside.
➋ Separate egg yolks from egg whites. Place the egg yolks in a large bowl and the egg whites in a small bowl. Set egg whites aside for later. On medium-high speed, beat egg yolks until they deepen in color and become sticky, about 1 minute. In a small stream, slowly begin to add sugar to egg yolks while beating. Continue to beat until egg yolks are pale yellow and forms the ribbon, about 3-4 minutes. Set aside.
➌ Cut butter into pieces so it melts evenly. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, add butter and both kinds of chopped chocolate. Melt in 20 second increments in the microwave, stirring well between each increment until chocolate is smooth and fully melted.
➍ Slowly beat warm melted chocolate into the egg yolk mixture at low speed. Continue beating until fully incorporated.
➎ While beating on low speed, add the 2 egg whites one at a time. Beat just until egg whites are fully mixed in.
➏ Pour batter evenly into prepared pan, and bake on center rack for 25-30 minutes until edges are set. The brownies are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with only a few crumbs.
➐ Let brownies completely cool on a wire baking rack before cutting.
