This cappuccino brownie recipe is fudgy and decadent with a hint of coffee flavor.
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 8-inch square baking pan; set aside.
Combine 1 tablespoon espresso powder and hot water in bowl; stir to dissolve. Set aside.
Melt 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup butter in 3-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 4-7 minutes or until smooth. Remove from heat; stir in espresso mixture, sugar and vanilla. Add 1 egg at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add flour, baking powder and salt; stir until well mixed.
Spread mixture into prepared pan. Bake 33-38 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely.
Combine 1 teaspoon espresso powder and 2 tablespoons milk in bowl; stir to dissolve. Add powdered sugar and 1/4 cup butter. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled brownies.
Melt 1/3 cup chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth.
Drizzle chocolate over frosting; swirl with toothpick or knife for marbled effect.

Best brownie recipe I have ever made, and most delicious brownies I have ever eaten. LOVE them! I also used instant coffee instead of espresso mixture and they turn out just as great. Anytime I have to make a special dessert for anything I always make these- and people always love them! (as long as they like coffee) Make sure not to over bake these though- they are gooey in the center even when they are finished, so the toothpick does not come out totally clean. BUT f you don't like fudgey gooey brownies just bake them a few minutes more, and they'll be less gooey, just don't super cook them and burn them.Overall the best brownie ever! (I would eat the whole pan if I could!) Delicious!
When making these, I only had instant coffee as opposed to espresso and they still turned out delicious. No other alterations to the recipe - great as is. Will definitely make these again. Another commenter has it right, "Grown-up tasting brownies"!
I don't want to say how good or how easy this recipe is. I'll enjoy my exclusive till others catch up. Truly exquisite!
Wonderful. Grown up tasting brownies.
"Yummy!" I make cookie platters for Christmas and these are "a must" on them! "Impressive"

Some people say their weakness is chocolate. Others say potato chips. My weakness is brunch. The sweet and savory combinations of brunch food are irresistible. I have spent many hours in search of the best brunch in town, and I am being totally honest when I say I found it in my own kitchen.
