Fudgy Mocha Brownies


The brownie love that is! I admit it, I'm on a brownie kick. I don't see anyone I'm feeding them to complaining! These brownies were fudgy and yummy! Even Grumpy liked these - and he normally won't eat anything with toffee bits because he doesn't like "crunchy"!

These brownies went to work and they were all gone before noon. I didn't bother to move the box once it was empty and people kept coming in and looking in the box hoping for a brownie. I know, what a tease. I even had one faculty say that the box sitting there was her favorite box and she gets excited when she see's it next to the coffee maker. I would have to say that the faculty and students in my department are not only well fed but spoiled rotten!


Since I posted my Junior Mint Brownies I have seen even more brownie posts popping up. Check them out for some more brownie ideas!

It must be brownie season! Toffee and coffee in a brownie is awesome, but the fact that they are light is even better!

Let me get this straight. Chocolate, coffee, AND toffee? yum yum!

Creative One said...

Delicious looking brownies!

RecipeGirl said...

Hi Honey B- how many pieces do you cut these into to get a serving size of 3 WW points? 9? 12?

They look wonderful. I'm wondering how they would taste if you subbed half whole wheat flour. I've been experimenting w/ that lately!

HoneyB said...

Thanks for all the comments!

Lori - They should be cut into 20 pieces. Sorry, wish it was bigger, but really, they aren't too small. I cut 4 lines one way, 5 lines the other direction.

Tangled Noodle said...

I'm begging you for mercy . . .! How am I ever going to lose the Christmas weight if I keep seeing these gooey, fudgy, chocolate-y squares of goodness?

Barbara Bakes said...

Those look better than they did on myrecipes.com! Seriously MUCH better.

Yes, brownies seem to be popular right now. I've already posted one recipe and have a second in the works and just made a third that I haven't even started writing about!

Brownies are no brainers... everyone usually likes if not loves 'em!
