An easy yet delicioius brownie, with undertones of mocha flavors…
Is it just me who is feeling that the month of February is literally on a horse back? Ever since I have been home, I am not able to get a calculation of time. It tends to move really fast, despite me waking quite early every morning and attending to all my tasks intended for the day. There are days when I still feel that I haven’t done enough. Couple it up with the slowly disappearing winter, it is making me absolutely moody and frustrated. It makes me feel sad that the cozy days are slowly coming to an end. It gets warm at times even during the night. The Hot Chocolate weather has just not been much this year. I am sure it is just not my feeling….
Usually the month of February has a very cheesy month with too much “love” in red in the air. Chocolate is always a part of it. So I felt that this post of brownies that I had baked some time back was really appropriate for the time. I have quite a lot of brownie recipes already on the blog and selecting a favorite is a really difficult task. But if you ask me a favorite using only cocoa powder, these fudge brownies would be it. I have baked them for numerous times to be totally loved. When I came across this recipe, I had to try it. I love anything with coffee and I was guaranteed that this would be well accepted. And it turned out just like I had hoped for. The coffee flavor was very prominent and that gave the brownies a lovely edge. I would urge to make them for your cup of coffee and enjoy them before the chilled evenings say good bye…
