Cocoa Coffee Brownies “Caffeinated Brownies”

An energizing and chocolatey twist on your next coffee break — Cocoa Coffee Brownies “Caffeinated Brownies.”

I have heard it said that coffee truly does enhance the flavor of chocolate. But even if it didn’t, I think somehow I would still manage to combine them together in some form or facet. I rarely bake anything chocolatey without adding a little espresso and this recipe is no exception.

Brownies are my go-to recipe when I need to “bake something really quickly.” I always have the ingredients on hand and they are so simple to whip up in a flash. This recipe is one that I love eating and love sharing.
