Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a jelly roll pan (approximately 12" x 18") with cooking spray and then line with parchment; reserve. Put the butter and chocolates into a heatproof bowl and place over a pot of simmering water. Once both are completely melted, set aside to cool to room temperature. Reserve. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the mixing paddle, or using a hand mixer fitted with the mixing beaters, mix the eggs and egg yolk on speed 3 until lightened, about 30 seconds. Add the granulated and brown sugars and beat on speed 4 until light and thickened, another 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add instant espresso and vanilla; beat until well combined. Stir the flour and salt into the chocolate mixture. Add the chocolate/flour mixture to the egg/sugars mixture and mix on speed 1 until just incorporated. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until edges are dry. When fully cooled, cut into rounds using a 2¼-inch round pastry cutter.
