    I have been looking for a brownie using cocoa powder rather than the squares of chocolate and this recipe is the one. I used one of those little Via type packets of instant coffee - I have no idea how much that is compared to the teaspoon in the recipe, but the flavor was exactly what I was looking for. I baked in an 8 X 8 glass baking dish for exactly 24 minutes and they came out with the perfect consistency.

    Turned out very good but would like more coffee flavor so may add more next time.

    VERY good ! I also used instant espresso, and included 2 TBSP BLACK cocoa -- made them dark rich and yummy. Had a Senior Moment when I started and had melted TWO sticks of butter, but had already stirred in the sugar, so just increased everything and made 2 batches. Did not use icing -- just topped with powdered sugar. Will be making these again soon.Thanks for posting, Kleigh.

    Yum, we loved these! I made as written except instead of using instant coffee granules I used instant espresso granules for a stronger coffee flavor. In the ingredient list for the frosting there's no cocoa amount listed, but I used about a 1/4 cup. Thanks for sharing your recipe we'll enjoy again! :)
