Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate Brownie Theme Week.
Today's Bittersweet Chocolate Premium Baking Chips were from Godiva (Belgium).*
I used these 69% cacao Godiva bittersweet chocolate chips to make a last batch of homemade brownies this brownie-themed week (with butter, egg, molasses, a small amount of gluten-free flour, ginger, cinnamon and toasted almonds).
I was glad to see these higher-percentage (69 percent) cacao Godiva chocolate chips. They had a uniform, smooth dark flavor. And, for my taste, there was enough sugar in this chocolate for the chocolate chips to serve as the primary sweetener. (I also added a teaspoon or two of molasses.)
This particular recipe yielded a dark fudge, soft cookie-like texture that made them easier to transport and share than softer, gooey-er style brownies. The recipe could easily be adapted to achieve more of the latter qualities (more chocolate chips, less gluten-free flour, use of a deeper glass pan and possibly slightly shorter cooking time).
I enjoyed the very subtle molasses and warm spice flavor and aroma note(s) of this particular recipe. However, it's hard to beat the classic, plain chocolate brownie studded with dark chocolate chips.
