Oreo Crunch Brownies

Keith wanted to make a new recipe with Oreos and brownies . . . this is what we came up with.  It is a good recipe . . .tender and chewy . . . it's a keeper!

Oreo Crunch Brownies
1 c butter
1/2 lb semi sweet chocolate chips
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped into small chunk
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp instant coffee granules (dissolved in 2 TBL hot water)
1 tsp vanilla
1 c + 2 TBL sugar
1/2 c + 2 TBL flour
1/2 TBL baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 c coarsely chopped Oreos (fairly large chop)
Preheat oven to 350*.  Butter and flour a 13X9 baking pan.
Melt butter and both chocolates together, in the microwave, till smooth and melted.  Do it a little at a time as chocolate will burn!  Allow to cool a bit.
In a large bowl, mix together eggs, coffee, vanilla, and sugar.  Blend chocolate mixture into the egg mixture.  Cool to room temperature.
In a separate bowl, sift together 1/2 c  flour, baking powder and salt.  Add to the chocolate mixture.
Chop Oreos and mix with remaining 2 TBL flour.  Add Oreos/flour mixture to the batter.
Pour batter into pan.  Smooth the top and place in oven.  Bake for approximately 30 minutes but watch very carefully.  They may not take the full time . . . the first time we made them, they did not take as long as original  recipe stated.  Do the toothpick test . . . do not overbake!  Remove from oven and let cool completely.  Refrigerate, covered tightly with plastic wrap, until cold.  Cut into squares when chilled.
