How to Make Mudslide Brownies

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt 4 chocolate baking squares and 1/2 cup butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally.

    Remove from heat, and transfer to a large bowl.

    Add sugars; stir well. Stir in eggs, 2 teaspoon espresso powder, and 2 teaspoon Kahlua.

    Add flour and salt, stirring until blended. Stir in pecans.

    Spread batter into a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined 11" x 7" pan. Bake at 325° for 26 to 28 minutes or until brownies appear set on top.

    Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

    Melt remaining 2 chocolate baking squares and 2 Tbsp. butter in heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally.

    Remove from heat; transfer to a medium bowl.

    Stir in remaining 2 tsp. espresso powder, whipping cream, vodka, and remaining 2 Tbsp. Kahlua.

    Add enough powdered sugar to make a good spreading consistency, beating at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.

    Spread frosting over cooled brownies; garnish, if desired.

    Let stand until frosting is set.
  2. Use foil to lift uncut brownies out of the pan.

    Cut into bars to serve.

    Note: If you prefer not to add any alcohol to this dessert, you can use sweetened coffee instead of the Kahlua and omit the vodka.
