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!

Servings 10 people


  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons espresso powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips or chocolate discs


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add the sugar, cocoa powder and espresso powder once the butter is melted. Whisk to combine and remove from heat.
  • Add the salt, vanilla and eggs and continuously whisk until the eggs are combined. Add the flour and continue to mix.
  • Transfer the batter into a 9×9 parchment lined baking pan. Top with the chocolate chips. Transfer to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until done. Remove and let cool for 2 hours before slicing and serving.


I love to line my pans with an overhang when making brownies. This allows you to lift the entire brownies out (once totally cool!) for the easiest slicing.

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

  2. 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.

    1. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

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

    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!!

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

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

  8. 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.

  9. I made these for breakfast this morning and feel no guilt! So delicious! Can’t wait to receive your new cookbook,

  10. I made these for breakfast this morning and feel no guilt! So delicious! Can’t wait to receive your new cookbook,

    These brownies are delicious! I have made them many times, everyone loves them! The only thing I don’t like is that the recipe uses every size measuring cup I have

    I just made these, and omg they are divine. They are fudgey, slightly coffee flavored, and the perfect level of chew. I always love your recipes!
