    *Note: When adding the cold coffee in this recipe, I use a decaffeinated instant coffee. I posted a photo of the decaffeinated instant coffee that I used in this recipe. And sometimes when I frost the brownies, instead of making the frosting, I will use a bit of a store bought chocolate frosting. I posted a photo of the chocolate frosting I really like, and had purchased at Aldi's.
