Step 1

Heat oven to 325F (Pyrex).

Step 2

Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick spray.

If desired, line the pan with a piece of parchment, leaving an overhang on two sides; spray the parchment with nonstick spray.

Step 4

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and chopped chocolate with the coffee powder, stirring occasionally; remove from heat.

Step 5

With an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy.

Reduce speed to low and mix in the melted chocolate mixture, then the flour and salt just until incorporated. Fold in the nuts and chocolate chips.
