These are the best chocolate brownies that I've ever tasted. Got this from a friend at work and now I make them all the time.
I made these in a 7x11 pan which did change cook time, but i started at 30 minutes and checked for consistency every 7 minutes or so. They came out fudgy in the middle, chewy on the outsides, and had a crisp crust on top, i would definitely recommend adding extra coffee for standard instant coffee for a stronger flavor, but they came out absolutely delicious without any added frosting (opted for no frosting on the first go round). I added chocolate chips over the top before i put it in the oven, and it added a really good extra chocolate flavor to them. definitely will be making these again - 13 Aug 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were really good. I don't know why people thought they were cakey- With the high concentration of fat and lack of leavening, I don't see how they had any choice but to be fudgey. And they were! I used a cup of strong coffee in place of the granules and water in the brownies. I mixed half a cup of baking cocoa to the frosting with the powdered sugar. I also used strait coffee instead of the granules and milk until it was of spreading consistency, as well as a couple of pinches of salt. - 27 Jul 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
