Mocha Brownies

in Food


Sometime you see a recipe and you read the instructions and wonder how that is going to turn out.  Well, this is one of those recipes.  Not only did I have to try it because of how different it was but it sounded good too.  I saw this recipe awhile ago on Tasty Kitchen and saved it.  I made it recently for a dinner party and it was a huge hit.  There is nothing normal with this brownie at all.  First you make the brownie mix and pour in into the pan and then your pour coffee all over it.  When I did this I just stared at it and thought it was going to be a disaster.  But boy, was I wrong.  What comes out of the oven is this delicious chocolate and coffee brownie that is out of this world, and it is very easy to make too.  But before you go and make this I do have to warn you:  this brownie is VERY rich.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

It looks delicious, but doesn’t it have to much sugar, I think something bitter or sour should be added in order to dose down the sweetness. But in the plate it looks great!

What a great idea. I am even curious if you could server this with sour cream instead of whipped cream. I am sure it would be awesome.
