PIONEER WOMAN'S MOCHA BROWNIES

Got this recipe from Food Network's Pioneer Woman series yesterday. They are delish. Here are some tips from the Pioneer Woman herself:

. You can easily halve the icing recipe if you want a less-thick layer. This is a lot, lot, lot of icing.
2. You can bake the brownies in a 9 x 13 inch pan if you want the brownies a little thinner.
3. Cut the brownies into very small squares (the brownies in the photos above were so large, they had to be split up.) They’re nice and rich.

Can also serve in a bowl topped with coffee ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Sinful!

How to Make PIONEER WOMAN'S MOCHA BROWNIES

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick baking spray.
  2. For the brownie batter: Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30-second increments, being careful not to let it burn. Set it aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, cream the butter and granulated sugar. Beat in the eggs. With the mixer on low speed, drizzle in the melted chocolate. Add the vanilla extract and mix. Add the flour to the bowl and mix just until combined; do not over mix.
  4. Pour the batter in the prepared baking pan. Spread it to even out the surface. Bake until the center is no longer soft, 40 to 45 minutes. Set the brownies aside to cool completely before icing.
  5. For the icing: In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, salt and vanilla. Mix until slightly combined, then add 1/2 cup of the coffee. Whip until the icing is light and fluffy. If the icing is overly thick, add 1/4 cup more coffee. It should be very light and fluffy.
  6. Ice the cooled brownies, spreading the icing on thick. Refrigerate until the icing is firm, and then slice the brownies into VERY SMALL squares. A little goes a long way!
