This is what happened to these brownies:
They didn’t last an hour.
Oh smitten kitchen, stop taunting me with all of your amazing recipes! This is starting to get a little stalker-ish if you ask me. Deb, please don’t put a restraining order on me. I couldn’t help myself on this one. You posted it and I had all the ingredients and friends and family to feed. And it was obviously a success.
These are not fancy brownies. I will tell you that. Not like the grasshopper brownies, or the cappuccino brownies I’ve made before. But just because they aren’t fancy doesn’t mean they aren’t delicious.
Such a simple recipe, so few ingredients (all of which are staples in my kitchen) and so many different directions you could go with it. Add some chocolate chips, andes mints, some espresso powder, pinch of cayenne, nuts. . . the opportunities are endless. I was in a bit of a hurry, so I melted the butter in the microwave until I got the consistency that the recipe called for – as Deb noted, it worked perfectly.
I do believe that these brownies would work well to ship since there is no cocoa butter from chocolate chips/bars in it. Delicious. This will certainly be a go to recipe for me whenever I need a quick dessert.
