So I know these brownies look like the best-ever Kroger ones... but they're not. These I made from scratch and for once the results are not disappointing.
So—ta da!—mocha brownies: amazing. The recipe is from one of my favorite cooking sites, Leite's Culinaria.
Lots of chocolate, mostly dark, and a tablespoon of instant espresso make all the difference.
Of course I recommend brownies and red wine. I drank pinot noir but I prefer a good cab and that's what I suggest. These brownies are up to it.
