Coffee and Cream Brownies


I made these awhile ago not sure why I did not put them up then. The recipe comes from Taste of Home. They are a wonderful brownie. There is just something about coffee and chocolate together.
Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, cubed
3 squares of unsweetened chocolate chopped
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 salt

Filling:

1 tbsp. whipping cream
1 tsp. instant coffee granules
2 tbsp. softened butter
1 cup icing sugar

Glaze:

1 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup whipping cream


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Grease and line an 8" square baking pan.

Melt butter and chocolate in microwave stir until smooth. Let cool slightly.

In mixer bowl beat eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add the cooled chocolate butter mixture. Beat until combined.

In small bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk this together.

Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture until just combined.

Spread mixture into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Test with tooth pick in center of brownie it should be clean when it come out. Do not over bake however. Cool on wire rack.

Filling:

Combine cream and coffee in small bowl and stir until coffee is dissolved.

In mixing bowl combine butter and icing sugar and beat until creamy and fluffy. Add the coffee mixture until well combined. Spread over cooled brownies.

In a saucepan pour cream and add the chocolate chips. Stir over medium low heat until mixture thickens slightly. Let cool. Spread this mixture over the filling and let cool for half hour or so. Then cut into squares.
