If you like a mocha flavor or coffee flavor with some sweetness, you're going to love these espresso brownies! There's just the right amount of coffee in them to make them extra delicious, and I still enjoy a cup of coffee on the side...or milk, too.
Cooking Time1 hr
- 9 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 1 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
- 3/4 cup roasted espresso beans, finely ground
- 3 1/4 cups granulated sugar

- In a stainless steel bowl over boiling water or double boiler, melt chocolate and butter together until smooth.
- In a large bowl with an electric mixer set on low, thoroughly mix together ground coffee and sugar.

- Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
