For those times (like at 9:00 pm) when you want brownies and a glass of milk in order to binge watch your favourite Netflix series!
Preheat your oven to 180C/350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 square pan or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large microwave-safe bowl or in a saucepan, melt the butter and 1/4 cup chopped chocolate until melted and smooth. Let cool for about 3 minutes before adding sugars.
Whisk in the sugars and then the eggs until fully combined. Stir in the espresso extract, almond extract, vanilla, salt, and cocoa powder. Then add the flour - do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips and nuts.
Sprinkle coarse sea salt over the top, and serve brownies warm, with a generous dollop of vanilla ice cream or some whip cream or a big glass of milk.
* I use this brand of chocolate - about 1/3 of the bar is equal to 1 oz or 1/4 cup.
