These little gems are mmmm good! They are like brownie bites...moist, chocolatey goodness!

Very easy to make and bake. I mix this dough in a medium saucepan. No mixer, beaters or bowls.

Hope you enjoy making them as much as eating them!

Step-By-Step

1In a medium sized heavy sauce pan over medium heat melt butter and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Stir in coffee powder/crystals. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in sugars, eggs and vanilla.
2Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir into chocolate/coffee mixture. Add 1 cup chocolate chips and stir until just mixed in.
3Shape into balls about the size of a pecan and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Do NOT bake longer. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Move to wire rack.
