So, it was one of those afternoons that I was cooking dinner with the Food Channel buzzing in the background. I was looking for inspiration between the hollering and fighting between the kidlets. Somewhere while chopping onions, I heard Ina Garten mention brownies? Did someone say BROWNIES? I quickly dropped my knife and plopped in front of the t.v. to watch.
Well, these aren’t your ordinary brownies. WOAH! They were fully loaded with chocolate and spiked with coffee. This, I told myself, I must try!
And try I did! One staff appreciation lunch at my children’s school popped up on my calendar. They needed a dessert! Hello Outrageous Coffee Brownies!
The batter was delicious and I was bouncing off the walls by the time my hubby came home. I realized these babies were a little bit much fuel for my kids, so I would only let them eat a bite-sized piece. I certainly didn’t want these guys going to bed at midnight!
The brownies were a hit at school. I think most of the staff at school found some energy (whether fueled by caffeine or sugar) to finish the day with a smile!
