  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup espresso morsels


  • Cook butter in a saucepan over medium heat until melted. Remove from heat and cool for just a minute.
  • Whisk in sugar and cocoa powder until combined.
  • Whisk in flour, salt, vanilla and eggs. Mix just until combined.
  • Gently Fold in the espresso chips.
  • Spread into a greased 8 x 8 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 - 20 minutes.


Work quickly while making these brownies because you want the butter warm but not hot. If it is too hot the eggs will scramble when you add them.
I cooked these for 18 minutes. They were slightly underdone, just how I like them. If you prefer them to be a little more on the done side, cook them for 20 - 22 minutes.
While these are good room temperature, a quick 10 - 15 second warm up in the microwave makes them taste like they just came out of the oven!
