A friend gave me the recipe for these rich cake-like brownies topped with a creamy coffee-enhanced filling and a chocolate glaze. I like to garnish each square with a coffee bean.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 5, 2012

These are delicious brownies. I garnished them with chocolate covered espresso beans. I noticed that I needed to add additional cream to the filling mixture because it was too dry; but other than that I made them as written.

MY REVIEW

These were delicious but very messy. Not sure if I did something wrong or what, but the toppings never really set and they definitely didn't look like the picture. But I will still make them again because they were soo yummy!

We made this recipe at our bakery and it was a HUGE hit. They are delicious and relatively easy to make. Use the best chocolate available and unsalted butter for optimal results. Enjoy!
