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"!
