    9 hrs 5 mins


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour four 8x8-inch baking pans.
  2. Place the chocolate chips and the coffee granules in a double boiler over simmering water. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs two at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in vanilla, cinnamon, and salt, then mix in the melted chocolate. Mix in flour until just blended. Divide the batter equally into the prepared pans, and spread smooth.
  4. Bake for 35 minutes in preheated oven, or until the edges pull from the sides of the pans. Cool on a wire rack. Cover, and refrigerate for 8 hours. Cut the cold brownies into bars to serve.

OK, I can not believe I am about to type this, but, these are so much better than store bought! And, I love store bought. I am a chocoholic.... these are amazing. I did leave out the cofee and cinomin because I just wanted brownies.(Oh, I also did half brown sugar half white) These are so moist and fudgy, just like I like them. If you like cakey brownies these are not it. If you want a rich creamy fudgy chocolate dream of a brownie, look no further. Oh, and make sure to let them cool in the fridge before you cut them or they will crumble. I also halved the recipe and baked in a 7x11 pan and it worked great.

I halved this recipe, so maybe that's why I got such bad results. The brownies came out really dry and cakey, not moist and chewy at all.

These turned out rather dry and needed the frosting to redeem them. I've taken the idea and added instant coffee to the "Best Brownies" recipe on this site, and that turns out wonderful, no frosting necessary.

They went together pretty easily and tasted good. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the texture - I like my brownies chewier, these were pretty crumbly.

This is a great recipe. I do make a couple of changes though. Instead of baking in 4 8x8 pans,I baked them in two 9x13 pans. Also try topping with pecan pieces and a few mini chocolate chips before baking YUM!

This is my first attempt at making brownies and it turned out fantastic! On top of that, it was really easy to make. I didn't have unsalted butter at that point of time and used salted butter instead and i used baking chocolate instead of choc chips, really yummy. My family and collegues loved it! Thanks for this fab recipe Mary Beth.

Chocoholics dream! Very easy to make, and made the whole house smell so lovely... The brownies were a little bit on the dry side, though that might be my own fault. Watching brownies in the oven and a house full of son's friends does not go together very well, and I did get the pan out of the oven good 8 minutes after the timer rang. I will be making these again though.

I followed recipe exactly and brownies came out perfectly! My sister actually requested these for her birthday instead of cake!
