  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Melt shortening and 1/2 cup butter in a small pan over low heat; pour melted mixture into a mixing bowl. Stir cocoa into butter mixture until well combined, followed by sugar. Dissolve 4 teaspoons instant coffee with hot water in a small bowl; stir into cocoa mixture. Whisk eggs into batter, one at a time, beating each egg in thoroughly before adding the next. Stir flour, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and salt into batter just until moist. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake brownies in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely.
  4. Beat 1/2 cup softened butter with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a bowl. Add confectioners' sugar to mixture and beat until creamy using an electric mixer on medium speed. Dissolve 1 tablespoon instant coffee with milk in a small bowl; add to frosting. Increase mixer speed to high and beat until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Frost cooled brownies.

These had great flavor, but just a bit too cakey for me. Personal preference.

The brownie itself needs some work... doesn't have much flavour :( Although the frosting is quite good. I'd give the frosting 5 stars!

A real crowd pleaser! Made a few of my own twists though :) also very good as a cinnamon blondie with French vanilla coffee frosting!

Too sweet and too cakey, but the frosting was delish...although, come to think of it, I had to add about a half of the coffee called for because my brand of instant is very powerful!

I have a huge sweet tooth & these are wayyyy too sweet! The flavor is good but its like I'm eating spoonfuls of pure sugar.....this coming from someone who eats chocolate pancakes for breakfast!

The brownies have a strong coffee flavor and the texture was great! I did think that the frosting was a little too sweet (but I don't care for many frostings for this reason).

Very good! If you like sweet coffee treats you will like these :)

I love love love thses brownies!!!! They are amazing, they have beatiful texture and consitancy the favor is fabulous. Everyone who has tried these, LOVES THEM!!! Would reccomend to anyone!
