Make the Brownies

  • Preheat your oven to 350F and line an 9’’x13’’ pan with parchment and cooking spray.
  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Set it aside. Then in a separate bowl, beat together your sugar, oil, espresso powder, milk, yogurt, and vanilla for 2-3 minutes on high.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, add about 2/3 of the Amedei Gocce Drops. Place the butter on top and melt in the microwave until the butter and chocolate chips are both fully melted. Then mix them together. Pour the melted chocolate and butter into your wet ingredients and beat for 2 minutes on a medium.
  • Slowly fold in your dry ingredients into the wet ones. Mix until just combined, you do not want to over mix. Fold in the rest of your chocolate chips. Pour the batter into your baking pan and bake for 40-45 minutes. Stick a toothpick in after 40-45 minutes, if it does not come out clean, add 5 more minutes to the baking time. Then, after the cook time has elapsed, turn the oven off, open it slightly and let the brownies sit for 10-15 minutes. Remove the brownies, let them cool completely.
