Dark Chocolate Mocha Brownies Recipe

Dark Chocolate Mocha Brownies Recipe

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
