Where do we even start today? Before we get to the best brownies the world has ever seen (recipe inspired by one my grandma used to make us as kids) let’s talk about the fact that I never had a cup of coffee until college. Clearly I hadn’t lived. The first time I had a coffee, it came in the form of a mocha and life pretty much changed before my eyes. I’ve been obsessed with mochas in all ways ever since.

Chocolate and Coffee are a match made in heaven and these brownies are no exception to that rule!

So, without further ado, grab yourself a cup of coffee and have at it!

    Hi Gaby! These look amazing. What temperature should they be baked at? Sorry if I missed that in the instructions!

  2. Anne Pik

    Gaby last night I made your Cappuccino brownies for friends coming over tonight. I get raves each time I make them. Seriously THE BEST brownies ever!!! Thanks for all your amazing recipes & I’m going to try this one as well.

  3. Ann

    These look great – do you think coconut sugar would work in place of white sugar?

    • AT

      Tried them with coconut sugar and they are just as good! Also used GF flour and Enjoy Life semisweet chips and they were still great as well!

  4. Judy

    I love the smell of coffee but cannot stand the taste, but I’ve learned that just a little makes chocolate even better like in tiramisu!

  5. Fran

    I made these brownies today & they were absolutely delicious, even though I forgot to add the chocolate chips before putting the pan in the oven.

  6. Allison

    What can you use in place of espresso powder? Actual espresso? Instant coffee powder? Couldn’t find any at my grocery store.

  7. Allison

    These brownies are so easy and delicious! I will never make brownies from a box ever again!!!!

  8. Daniel

  9. AT

    Two things:
    1. These are AMAZING. I would eat the batter raw, and I don’t eat raw batter, not even cookie dough.
    2. Do you seriously wait for these to cool? HOW??

    Thank you for this amazing recipe!!

    Want to make these chocolate mocha brownies for someone who is allergic to eggs. What do you suggest so that the flavor remains divine?

    • Gaby

      I haven’t tested it with an egg substitute so I can’t say for sure! What do they normally use as a sub?

  13. Jo-anne Retallick

    Made for dessert Wed. Yes it is a thing….Desseprt and survivor….lol In the oven so can’t rate yet but batter was amazing. Didn’t have espresso powder so googled it and made my own as I had espresso beans. Super easy and house smelled so good. Now we just have to wait…..the hardest part.

    I doubled the recipe, how long should I bake? Doing it in a 9×13

    • Gaby

      haven’t tested it as a doubled recipe!!

  17. Carolyn

    Is there a difference between instant espresso powder and regular? Which is normally used for baking?
