I created these brownies by combining my favorite beverage and chocolate together for a cooking contest. I was so pleased with the results, I knew the recipe was a keeper.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

Directions

In a microwave, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, brown sugar and vanilla. Beat in chocolate mixture. Combine the flour, baking powder and cinnamon; stir into chocolate mixture.
Spread into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
For filling, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Dissolve coffee in water. Stir into cream cheese mixture. In a microwave, melt chips and butter; stir until smooth. Beat into cream cheese mixture until blended. Spread over brownies.
For glaze, in a microwave, melt chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip each almond halfway into glaze and place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Let stand until chocolate is set. Drizzle remaining glaze over bars. Place almond in the center of each bar. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 16 bars.

"We loved the filling, but the brownie was more like cake. I will make the filling again, but use a different brownie recipe. Thanks for sharing!"

"Most brownie recipes say to mix just until dry ingredients are moistened, so I did that, but the brownie was more dry and "cakey" than I like for a brownie. Maybe someone else could do it better."
