100 percent Deca - Dent!!!

This is the most delish Brownie recipe! I think it's going to be making an appearance at the next Scrap Night!! Discovered it today on Everyday Italian, a show on Food Network.

Espresso Brownies

Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis
Recipe SummaryDifficulty: Easy

Prep Time: 12 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 36 bite-size brownies

Nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons espresso powder
1 (19.8-ounce) box brownie mix (recommended: Duncan Hines)
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 by 9-inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Whisk 1/3 cup of water, oil, eggs, and 2 tablespoons espresso powder in a large bowl to blend. Add the brownie mix. Stir until well blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 35 minutes. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, dissolve the remaining 2 teaspoons of espresso powder in the remaining 2 tablespoons of water in a medium bowl. Whisk in the vanilla. Add the powdered sugar and butter and whisk until smooth. Pour the glaze over the brownies. Refrigerate until the glaze is set. Cut into bite-size pieces. Arrange the brownies on a platter and serve.

Okay, I LOVE her show on the Food Network! She is awesome! I do not need to look at that recipe though; look away! look away! I am sorely tempted by brownies and that just doesn't fit with what I proclaimed in my blog today. I forgive you though! LOL!
