Tip #1

Instant espresso powder may be found in the aisle with instant coffee granules. If you can’t find espresso powder, choose a dark instant coffee product.

Made this just yesterday, and I had to leave a comment. It was delicious, super moist. My husband told me I should take them away as he kept going back for more. The picture shown is exactly how they turned out! Super chocolate fudge goodness! :)
