"These are wonderful! I make brownies so often I was looking for something different, and the cinnamon and coffee add just the right change. Perfect amount too. Thanks!"

"This recipe turned out perfect! Such great flavor, and baked up beautifully!! I used the "Rich chocolate Frosting" recipe (instead of store bought) in Taste of Home and it was excellent!"

"So, easy and very good! I put them in Shamrock paper liners and sprinkled them with green candy sprinkles, very pretty. Next time, I'll double the recipe."

"These are delicious- I do like the small quantity that this recipe makes. Mocha cinnamon is a favorite around here. (Almost as good as Peanut butter with chocolate!)"

"I had a problem, they fell when I took them out. I checked them at the time the recipe said to, and they fell! I made a homemade chocolate mocha frosting, put it on top, and you couldn't tell they fell! So, all is well. They taste good, I will try to make them again."
