"Man-catcher" brownies

If you can get past the title, this was written up in the Washington Post last week and they're really good. It makes a thick fudgy brownie (with 3 sticks of butter and 6 eggs!) and is even better the next day. I've been on a brownie baking mission lately and these have been our favorite:


12 ounces (3 sticks) unsalted butter
2 cups cocoa powder, sifted (natural or Dutch process)
6 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in saucepan, remove from heat and add cocoa (I used dutch process and it made them very dark and rich), cool slighty. Whisk eggs, sugar, vanilla and add to chocolate mix. Gradually add flour and salt. Spread batter into 13x 9 pan (lined w/ parchment paper or aluminum foil) and buttered. Bake 40-45 minutes until crust forms on top.
