Rich Double Chocolate Brownies

They say that the way into the heart is via the mouth, so that being said, if you are looking for ways to to swoon a loved one this Valentine's Day, I recommend you bake them Double Chocolate Brownies.   This is by far my favorite brownie recipe, because the results are an incredible fudge-like consistency with an intense chocolate rush, thanks to the chocolate chips and cocoa powder.  
A Few Things: As with any recipe involving chocolate, I always invest in good quality chocolate.  For this recipe, I opted to use Ghirardelli  semi-sweet chocolate chips over bittersweet chips and Ghirardelli  cocoa powder.  I finished my brownies off with powdered sugar, but a rich chocolate ganache would be a divine finisher as well. Lastly, I had hoped to cut the brownies out into the shape of a heart, but New York City seems to have a shortage of heart cookie cutters, meaning, they seem to be sold out everywhere.
