Dark Chocolate Mocha Brownies Recipe

Publisher Photo
Dark chocolate is a favorite around our house, so these frosted brownies are a hit. I came up with this treat by reworking a recipe I've used for a long time. We have six children, and these brownies disappear so fast I sometimes wonder if I actually made a batch. -Linda McCoy, Oostburg, Wisconsin

"People just don't stop asking for these! I've yet to present them to someone who doesn't really like them, even without the frosting! I use Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder. The nearly black coloring makes a pretty contrast with the white frosting."

"This is my all-time favorite brownie recipe. Even people who don't like coffee flavors love these! They're very moist and they don't crumble. I've made them for many events and they're a tremendous success!"
