Brownie Points for these Brownies!
So, today, we turn to "brownies" of a "lighter" variety.
Fudgy Mocha-Toffee Brownies
Coffee and toffee give these rich chocolate brownies a unique twist. Store leftovers (if there ARE any left) brownies in an airtight container for up to a week.
2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1/4 cup hot water
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/4 cup toffee chips
Preheat oven to 350º.
Coat bottom of a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
Combine coffee and hot water, stirring until coffee dissolves.
Combine butter and chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high 1 minute or until butter melts; stir until chocolate is smooth.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine coffee mixture, butter mixture, vanilla, and eggs in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add coffee mixture to flour mixture; stir just until combined. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle evenly with toffee chips.
Bake at 350º for 22 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Yield: 20 servings (or if you are like me.....3 one for lunch...one for mid afternoon snack...one for dinner!)
