Drumroll please…..here’s my second recipe for #Choctoberfest!! I love chocolate and coffee together and these brownies were the perfect combination of both. Today’s recipe features coffee from one of our sponsors, Caveman Coffee Co. Caveman Coffee Co. is a leader in the third wave specialty coffee market. Their coffee is hand-picked, wet processed and roasted in small batches in New Mexico. I received a bag of their Blacklisted coffee and I immediately knew I was going to love it! It’s a bold dark roast that is full of body and low acidity – the perfect type of coffee to combine with chocolate.
These brownies were really good. They’re more cake-like than fudge, but you can’t go wrong with any type of brownies! My husband raved about them and said they were so perfect warmed up with a glass of milk.
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup coffee
1 tsp finely ground coffee
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×9 square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the chocolate chips. Once the batter is completely mixed, fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared dish and bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the center of the brownies is slightly firm. Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
