Mocha Frosted Brownies

Happy Wednesday friends! Y’all know by now that I have a serious sweet tooth, in fact I think it’s more like a full set. You also know my first love is chocolate. #sorrykent #imetchocolatefirst Well do you know what’s even better than chocolate? Chocolate with a little coffee. Coffee somehow magically intensifies the flavor of chocolate, so we’re talking about a match made in heaven.

Today I’m sharing a recipe I’ve been making for years that I got from Sandra Lee’s Semi-Homemade on the Food Network. I love a recipe that starts with pantry ingredients, and this one is super easy to throw together and very decadent.

If you love chocolate and coffee, then you are going to love these!

Tip: Line your baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray to make it easy to just lift them out and then cut.

Espresso powder is the not so secret ingredient.
