Fudgy Coffee Brownies

mmmm brownies. Just one of the many foods that I told myself as a child that one day I would eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – ya know, once I moved out from my parent’s house.

Of course, I grew up and realized that brownies 3 times a day was not a feasible or healthy plan. So, instead, I make brownies here and there for special occasions, or to surprise my husband after he’s been away on a trip.

This past weekend, Jer was away with his friends on their annual camping trip and I thought it would be fun to make some brownies with a twist – and no, not the THC kind of twist – a coffee twist. If there’s anything my husband loves, it’s sweets with coffee or espresso flavors. And, the idea of brownies + coffee just made sense to me.
