Chocolate, Coffee, & Toffee


I’ve been cooking for Will and his friends the past few Sundays and they are great taste testers for new recipes.  Here is a Cooking Light recipe for brownies (so they HAVE to be healthy right??) and they are delicious!  If you have never made brownies from scratch I total recommend it because it’s easy but yet so rewarding!



Fudgy Mocha-Toffee Brownies

  • Cooking spray
  • 2  tablespoons  instant coffee granules
  • 1/4  cup  hot water
  • 1/4  cup  butter
  • 1/4  cup  semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3  cups  sugar
  • 1/2  cup  unsweetened cocoa
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 2  large eggs
  • 1/4  cup  toffee chips





Preheat oven to 350º.


Coat bottom of a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.  Combine coffee and hot water, stirring until coffee dissolves.


Combine butter and chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high 1 minute or until butter melts; stir until chocolate is smooth.


Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine coffee mixture, butter mixture, vanilla, and eggs in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add coffee mixture to flour mixture; stir just until combined. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle evenly with toffee chips. Bake at 350º for 22 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
