These cappuccino brownies are rich, dark and flavorful. And don’t worry if you don’t have instant espresso powder in your pantry; you can substitute instant coffee powder instead – preferably a dark roast.

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
4 eggs
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 325° F. Lightly grease the bottom of a 9×9-inch square baking pan with butter or shortening. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, melt the unsweetened chocolate and butter over very low heat. Stir constantly until the chocolate and butter are completely melted. Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in the sugar, espresso powder and vanilla. Add the eggs after the mixture has slightly cooled.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture. Stir until just combined and then fold in the dark chocolate chips.

Spread the batter in the prepared baking pan. Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Cut into 4 rows by 4 rows to make 16 cappuccino brownies.
