Espresso Brownies

Cook Time: 35 min
Level: Easy
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 13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Whisk 1/3 cup of
water, oil, eggs, and 2 tablespoons espresso powder in a large bowl to

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.
