  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 cup unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla
  • 3½ cups granulated sugar

  4. Gently stir in the 1 cup chocolate chips, white chocolate, and macadamia nuts.
  5. In a heavy saucepan, heat the cream and 1 cup chocolate chips, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Cool slightly.
    Beat the 3 eggs, 13 cup sugar, and salt until foamy, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir into the melted chocolate.
  6. Preheat the grill to medium or a touch higher (375°F/190°C).
  7. Pour the brownie mixture into the prepared pan and gently smooth to level. Spread the topping mixture over the brownie mix.
  8. Set the soaked plank on the grill and set the brownies on the plank. Close the grill lid and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
  9. Cool for several hours or overnight before cutting into squares.
