I searched high and low and finally found this recipe for espresso brownies that are very similar to the ones no longer sold at Starbucks. I was thrilled to have stumbled upon it and have to share since so many people on line were searching for it with no avail! Enjoy!

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
