This glaze is awsome! You can also substitute coffee for kahlua or just add some to the mix.

Awesome brownies, very moist and rich with a nice hint of coffee flavor. The glaze, in particular, makes them pleasantly unique. Just don't ignore the part about the parchment, like I did - they're very hard to get out of even a nonstick pan sprayed with Pam. I also had to cook them around 10 - 15 minutes longer than the recipe called for, but my oven is wonky sometimes. Everyone seemed to really like them at the gathering I took them to, and they disappeared by the end of the night.
