  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (56 grams)
  • 1 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate chopped (42 grams)
  • 2 1/2 ounces dark or semisweet chocolate chopped (70 grams)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (100 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (16 grams)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts toasted coarsely chopped or M&Ms or chocolate chips (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line an 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch loaf pan with nonstick foil.
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan. When it's almost full melted, add the chocolates. Reduce heat to low and stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, beat the egg with a hand-held or stand mixer mixer for about a minute. With mixer going, gradually add the sugar and continue beating for about 5 minutes or until mixture reaches ribbon stage. Beat in the vanilla.
  • With a heavy duty scraper, fold together the slightly cooled chocolate mixture and egg mixture, then stir in the flour.
  • Pour batter into pan and spread to edges. Sprinkle walnuts or candy on top if desired.
  • Bake for about 22-25 minutes. Let cool at room temperature for about 30 minutes, then chill for about 2 hours. Lift from pan and cut into 8 rich squares.
