Wake up and smell the brownies: Wicked Mocha Bars

Coffee-rich, moist and nutty. Boy are these good! I was out of the extra dark cocoa that I sometimes blend into my brownie batter so I pulverized some coffee beans in the grinder until they became dust, and substituted that.

Mocha Bars

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 7 Tbs. cocoa
  • 4 tsp. finely ground coffee
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 c. chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs and mix well. Stir in dry ingredients, then vanilla. Pour into greased 8 x 8 pan, sprinkle with pecans and chips and lightly press them into the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
