Triple Espresso Brownies

Triple Espresso Brownies
I had a massive craving for coffee and chocolate last week. I used to get a coffee every day before work but have cut back recently and only get one (soy latte) on Friday as my end of the week treat. These brownies are a perfect treat too! I think they even top the Shortbread Brownies that until now have been the most popular brownies in our house.

Triple Espresso Brownies
These brownies are super soft and fudgey on the inside. I used three kinds of coffee in these, espresso powder, Green & Black’s Espresso Chocolate bar and Kona Coffee flavoring. You can use less if you don’t want such a strong coffee flavor.

I had to make these twice to get the recipe perfect. The first batch was a gross light brown color and hardly tasted of chocolate. I can guarantee these are fabulous!

5. Sift in the flour and salt. Finely chop the espresso chocolate and fold into the batter with a spatula.

6. Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake for 20-30 minutes. For more fudgey brownies check at 20 minutes for cakey bake a little longer (I like mine more fudgey).Enjoy with a cup of coffee or glass of milk!
