Yum! Crunchy on the top and chewy in the middle. I didn't use the one pan method- melted chocolate and did all the mixing in separate bowls. I also added 3 tbs of Bailey's (it was great- you could really taste it!) and dissolved the coffee power in a little water before adding it to the mix.

The brownie tastes good BUT it was tremendously oily at the base. I didn't have any butter so substituted it for margarine instead.

This was a VERY good recipe, but making it in its own pan makes clean up harder than usual. Next time I will melt the chocolate in the microwave and just use that bowl to do all the mixing. I also added chopped walnuts which were very nice in the final product. Overall this was a great recipe and I will definately make it again!

These came out great, although I did do a few things different. Like the previous reviewer, I mixed in a separate bowl and microwaved the chocolat & butter to keep things neat. I used 1 1/2 tbsp. of Kahlua, which made for very moist & chewy brownies. I nixed the powdered sugar, and instead sprinkled chopped hazelnuts over the batter before cooking. Next time I think I'll double the recipe and use a 9x13 pan. Thanks - these were great!

These were OK but I prefer my present recipe that has 2 whole eggs, double the sugar(they're not too sweet!), and 6 tablespoons butter. The coffee powder and liqueur don't flavor as much as they enhance the chocolate, which is certainly not a bad thing! I also found it easier to mix everything in the separate bowl that I melted the chocolate and butter in. I get better mixing of ingredients and can then pour into a lightly greased pan.

I will be making these again! They were so easy. I love coffee so I used 2T of the instant coffee and I did disolve in in about 1T of water before adding it. I also took the advice and melted the chocolate in a separte sauce pan, but then I mixed the rest of the ing. in the same pan and then transfered to the baking pan. 20 min was perfect in my oven.

After the first bite, my husband pronounced these "the best brownies I've ever eaten!" I took previous suggestions and used 3 tbsp. Irish Creme for the liqueur; I also used a separate bowl and melted the chocolate & butter in the microwave. Soooo good, especially when still warm and gooey from the oven.

I was so disappointed as was hubby and we ate just small square but noticed the next day, they were more flavorful and the day after, we finished them and that was their best day. So, make them a day ahead so the coffee and liqueur flavors can meld.
