Brownies take you to your childhood memories and back; everyone loves them; it doesn’t matter how old you are. A fudgy, crumbly brownie is a treat that makes you roll your eyes back in pleasure. Now, imagine your favorite brownies infused with rich and creamy espresso. Now we’re talking of the finest brownies ever.
Chocolate and coffee are naturally compatible; they’re both heartwarming and satisfying. All those intense flavors merge into a delicious brownie that’s a tribute to the two beans. Here’s all you need to know about the best espresso brownies, an awesome project for your next grown-up party.
The best brownies have lots of butter, but a little vegetable oil is needed, too, to achieve that gooeyness. We’re then using cocoa powder and espresso powder to infuse our brownies with flavor.
Then there’s lots of sugar, a few eggs, a few drops of vanilla extract and flour to keep everything together. This is not only the recipe for the best espresso brownies, but it’s also the easiest, and that’s fabulous! This means you can make these even if you don’t have cooking experience.
You’ll need an 8-inch square baking tray, pretty much a brownie standard, and a few mixing bowls, that’s it. These beauties are ready in just thirty minutes, and that includes the baking time. Fast, easy and tasty. What more do you need?
Of course, these brownies are ready to enjoy straight out of the oven, but you can have fun with them too. Crumble your brownie for an over-the-top ice cream topping. You can top yogurt, too, and if you’re feeling adventurous, you can crumble these beauties and enjoy them in a bowl with milk as if they were cereal.
Brownies are fun, so be creative and have a blast. Share these with your friends and family and make them as often as you can. Brownies with coffee? That’s the breakfast of champions right there.
