Coffee Chocolate Brownies

I love brownies!!!  Brownies have always been my ultimate favorite, when it comes to baking.  In my opinion, it seems like it has always been a great accomplishment with the least amount of work, the least amount of ingredients and a great satisfaction when it comes to the final product.  Brownies are quite versatile as a snack by itself, or dressing it up with a quick frosting or even a ganache.  If you’re looking to fancy it up, a scoop of ice cream and a little drizzle will dress it up very nicely.
Ingredients

6 oz dark chocolate chips
3 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup butter
1 tsp instant coffee
⅓ cup boiling water
3 eggs, room temperature, beaten
1¾ cup sugar
1 cup cake flour
1-2 tbsp. cocoa powder to coat the pan
1 cup of walnut (optional)

Brownies:
Preheat oven to 325°F.  Grease and flour 9″x 13″ baking pan with cocoa powder making sure to tap out all excess powder.

Melt both the dark and the semi-sweet chocolate chips and butter together in a double boiler until chocolate has fully melted.

Combine boiling water and instant coffee, stirring to dissolve coffee granules. Pour coffee into melted chocolate and stir until fully combined.  Cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, beat eggs in a mixing bowl until light and frothy.  Add the sugar and beat for two minutes on medium speed.  Reduce speed to low and beat in room temperature chocolate-coffee mixture.  Stir in flour just until combined.

Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle the walnuts on to of batter.  Bake for 40 minutes or until brownies are set.
