Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

In a large bowl, beat eggs and brown sugar; beat on medium for 1 minute. Stir in chocolate mixture and coffee. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to chocolate mixture.
Transfer to a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool completely on a wire rack.
