Cappucino Brownies

I don’t know if you feel the same, but it seems that with the dreary days of fall and winter also comes food cravings. And i have wanted desserts and sweets. Yeah, I know.. not good… but when there are teeenageers around, the chance to eat more than 1 piece or more than 1 slice is rare so I guess i can bake, it should not affect my weight too much 😉 ( see what i am doing?!?! trying to not feel so bad for baking or eating sweets.. ha ha ha) Anyway, the brownies have been so good that they are gone in a flash. In fact I baked 3 btaches in less than 2 days… I have wanted some capuccinno or coffee favor desserts so i added some coffee granule to the chocolate, and it was simply amazing! Give it a try, it is a twist on the regular chocolate flavored brownie;-)

Ingredients for 20 small bitesize brownie:

  • 6 oz of  Ghirardelli milkchocolate chips,
  • 4 oz of milk or white chocolate chips,
  • 3 eggs,
  • 1 stick of butter,  
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar,
  • 3/4 cup of flour,
  • 4 tbsp of coffee granule mixed in 2 tbsp of expresso.
  • 1/4 tsp of salt.

In a mixer, mix the eggs with the sugar and the salt until the eggs have doubled in volume, and become a lighter yellow color. Meanwhile, place the milk chocolate and the butter in a microwavable bowl, place the octogonal silpat on top of the bowl to avoid any splashing and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes to melt the chocolate and the butter. Mix the chocolate mixture so that it is homogeneous. Add the coffee mixture. Pour the chocolate mixture in the eggs mixture and stir. Add the flour, and the white chocolate chips in the chocolate/ egg mixture and mix well. Using the medium scoop, scoop the batter and fill in the openings of the small cupcake mold. Cook the brownie bites in a warm oven of 350 for 15-20 minutes until a light crust has developed on top, and the center is soft to touch. When using a knife to check for if it is cooked, the knife may not come out clean. The cake should be soft and gooey  but not liquid. Let the brownie cool completly before taking out of the mold, or it will break or stick.

C’est tout! Enjoy!!!

They are so addictive.. be careful! they will be gone in the blink of one eye. I have made 3 batches in 3 days;-)

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
