Mocha Brownies

If you are a coffee lover, these are for you!! I made these when we had friends over and paired them with some mint chocolate chip ice cream... HEAV-EN!!! (At least for my sister in law and I, who love coffee!) The were so fudgy, filled with coffee flavor and gone in 2 seconds! We must have talked about the taste and texture of them the whole time we were devouring them - I think I caught our husbands rolling their eyes a few times (in between plays of the Twins game)...

Mocha Brownies
(recipe found at delishh.com)

3/4 cups sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 piece unsweetened chocolate (1 square)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cups whole milk (I used skim)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 cup cold espresso or cold strong coffee

Heat oven to 350. Mix together 3/4 cup sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Melt square of unsweetened chocolate and butter in the microwave. Mix together milk and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients, alternating between chocolate mixture and milk mixture. Combine. Pour into greased 8x8 pan.

Combine brown sugar, the 1/2 cup additional sugar and cocoa powder. Sprinkle over cake batter. Pour cold coffee over top. Do not stir. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
