A REAL WINNER

I made these for a "Brownie Bake-Off" that we held at our church. I won first place for the most unique/different flavor of brownies. Guess I'll have to share the blue ribbon with Nestle'Cooks. Thanks once again for another great recipe.

    Cappucino Brownies

    LIZ OLMANSON from Kasota, MN

    These are by far the best brownies I have EVER made. They are rich and decadent and taste so good. I make these only for very special occasions because they are that good. Try them if you love coffee and chocolate together. You will not be disappointed.

    This was very easy and enjoyed by all! The only hard part was trying to make sure that the center of the brownies had baked. I was a little concerned about over baking them as stated in the other reviews.

    Way Too Awesome!

    Mark Mooney from Oklahoma City, OK

    I have both made these brownies and had them made for me. Both ways are great! It is NO trouble whatsoever, as a matter of fact, they're fun to make. Get ready for compliments!

    Cappuccino Brownies

    Sharon Sassano from Havelock, NC

    Great brownies! Even my husband who's not a big fan of cappuccino loved these. The first time my daughter and I made these we used a brownie recipe from scratch and they were awesome! The second time with a brownie mix wasn't as good. So if you have a favorite brownie recipe use it. This recipe would compliment any recipe. Great recipe, once you try them you'll be hooked!!!

  •  Star(s)

    Cappucino Brownies

    Janet Colter from MCDONOUGH, GA

    Nice change from plain brownies! I reduced the amount of coffee just to be on the safe side, but I think they'd be OK with the full amount. Also, I used a "scratch" brownie recipe instead of the packaged mix. My family really liked these brownies -- I'll definitely make them again!

  •  Star(s)

    strong coffee flavor

    Caroline Kunkel from Savannah, MO

    These are very good brownies, but they have a stong coffee flavor. If you are not a coffee fan, then these are not the brownies for you.
