    I love fudgy delicious brownies.  Don’t you?!  They are so delicious and I love the dense texture and deep chocolate flavor.  

This recipe has it all, cocoa powder, chocolate and instant coffee to give it that extra boost!

They come out just the way I like them.  I used most of the batch for something fun that will be posted this weekend (it’s a super delicious chocolate brownie cheesecake that has chunks of these brownies baked right in!)  My husband and I ate the rest within minutes!

     The best part about this recipe is that the batter can all be made in one saucepan.  You melt the butter and chocolate, add everything else and put it in your baking dish.  

Easy peasy!  The batter is delicious too, if you’re into that sort of thing. 😉
