This recipe did not turn out for me! They are more like cake and not the fudgy thick brownies we like.
absolutely delicous! but you need to bake it more than 22 minutes...
They were okay.. they were much too cakey for my liking and to me they were dry. Unlike some of the other reviewers..I could tell they were "light" brownies. Not a complete waste but not worth making again.
Since other people said this recipe has a tendency to come out dry and hard to mix, I made it using a stand mixer and used 1/3 of a cup of coffee items (1/4c of coffee water from a half a packet of instant coffee, and the remainder made from kaluha). This had a nice side benefit of making the mixture moister. However, it increased the baking time by almost double. Just keep a keen eye on your brownies!
Your note to store leftover brownies went unheeded.. there simply were no leftovers! Cofee, toffee and chocolate are a dynamite combination for the holidays. All of the flavors were balanced and the batter produced a lovely rich cake like texture. Yummy!
I don't know what about these brownies are light because they sure don't taste like light brownies. They were exceptionally easy to make and very delicious. I brought them into work as a treat and was told they were definitely 'keepers!" I used instant espresso and it just enhance the chocolate flavor, didn't overpower with a coffee taste. I love adding espresso to my baking, it just makes the chocolate deeper for some reason.
These brownies do not taste light at all. They were easy to make. I did not have instant coffee so I used added the amount of water. They were great without the coffee. I love toffee and so these really hit the spot. Everyone who I shared them with loved them and did not think they were light either.
These are the best brownies ever. Light but fudgy moist. Made for my book club where one woman loves fudgy brownies and the other loves cakey brownies...they both loved these.
These are definitely good, but they are a little too dry to be great. As others said, mixing the dough is a good arm workout - it's very dry and takes a lot of elbow grease to get everything combined.
A wonderful fudgy cakey type brownie. Beware when mixing this batter...its' very thick and stiffer than most brownie batters. No worries...it all works out. I patted mine in the pan w/my hands to make it easier. I"m not a coffee drinker, but it's just the right taste of subtleness.
Wonderful full tasting, great appearance.
I never seem to follow a recipe exactly, so I changed this slightly. I added only 1 T instant coffee dissolved in a SMALL amount of water, and then used Kahlua for the remaining 1/4 cup liquid. I did not have chocolate chips, so increased butter to 1/3 cup. Batter was still slightly stiff, so I added more Kahlua!! WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL! These are the NUMBER ONE best brownies I have ever eaten! They are moist and fudgy and heavenly! This will be my ONLY brownie recipe from now on.
Everyone loved these brownies. I didn't have instant coffee granules so I substituted Nesquick and dissolved it in water like the recipe said. I don't think the toffee chips really give it that much more flavor unless you mix it into the batter. Mmmmm
These are definitely fudgy and very filling. I put on a couple more tablespoons of chips and next time will press them into the batter as they fall off when eating. Mine also took another 10 minutes to bake. My husband thought they needed some nuts. Will try next time. A definite repeat.
Rated as one of the best recipes, I thought I'd try this. Definitely a disappointment, wouldn't make again. No one liked these. Too strong of coffee flavor
