This was very quick and easy to make..and very tasty!! There is a lot of booze in them. I can't really taste the espresso so much though. If you want to make them more kid friendly you could easily omit the booze, especially in the frosting! I say leave it in though and enjoy as a delicious adult brownie :)

Since these were only for 2 people, I cut the recipe in half, baked it for the same amount of time and kept the amount of espresso powder and liquor the same.. minus the vodka (it's flavorless). These were really flavorful with a great brownie texture The previous reviewer said the original recipe had too much "booze" in it..but you can barely taste it. (my mother's Christmas Bourbon Balls could knock me for a loop!). When chopping the espresso beans, do it by hand as the Cuisinart will chop them too finely.
