Awesome Brownies

Recipe by Evelyn in KC

These brownies soothe the most intense chocolate cravings. You can't taste the coffee liqueur; it adds depth and richness. They lend themselves to multiple variations, too! I've added raspberry chips, nuts, etc., all with great success.

Made these tonite as well as the other ones and these were very good. Easy to make. Will keep handy.
