these were the first brownies i made in my life...i baked two batches - one for us, one to take to work on the day of my birthday. after a short research, i decided to follow this recipe (brownies). 

185 g butter (unsalted)
185 g dark chocolate
85 g all purpose flour
40 g cocoa powder
50 g milk chocolate
50 g white chocolate
3 eggs
275 g golden sugar

cut the butter into small cubes and break the chocolate. now take a saucepan and fill it to the half with water and boil it. turn the heat down, take another saucepan (or a bowl) and place it on the first one. put in the chocolate and butter and stir until melted. leave it to cool down to the room temperature.

meanwhile in another bowl, sift the flour and cocoa powder. cut the white and milk chocolate. grease and flour the baking pan.

break the eggs in the large bowl, put in the sugar and whisk together until the mixture looks thick and creamy (the sugar should be totally melted). pour in the cooled chocolate and fold in with the spatula. you should do it really slowly and is very important. this way the air will get to the dough. at one point it will start looking almost like a chocolate mousse. when the dough becomes dark brown all over, fold in the dry ingredients. as the original recipe says, first it will look very dry but it will get better...just do not loose patience :). the last thing to mix in is the white and milk chocolate.

pour the brownie mixture to the greased and floured baking pan. place in the preheated oven and bake for about 25 minutes (180 °C). brownie should not be wobbly in the middle, the top must be shiny and look a little like paper. when you take it from the oven, leave it in the baking pan until it is cooled down. last step: cut brownies and enjoy :D
