Mocha Truffle Brownies

READY IN: 1hr 10mins

These are so good! It's from Taste of Home, and what a taste it is! They're everything I want in a brownie, they're delicious, smooth and creamy. If you like mocha, you'll love these as I do.

Top Review by Mrs. J

These brownies were very good and I will make them again. They are more of a "grown-up" treat. The actual brownie was a little dry so next time I won't bake them quite as long as the recipe calls for. A great recipe with good eye appeal also. Also the recipe does not make 6 dozen as stated. Maybe a dozen small ones.
