The icing was not tasting like coffee , I would definetely make it again and try more coffee on the icing! Fudgy and good!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 3, 2009

These were just okay to me. Regular brownies with icing which in my opinion do not need the extra sweetness from the icing. It was just too much.

These brownies are absolutely delicious. I made them for a Christmas potluck at work and received rave reviews from my colleagues. It is definitely a keeper.
