Coffee Cream Brownies

Here in Crustabakes, we tend to get a little over-indulgent.

Take these brownies for instance.

They are pretty much delicious as they are. Chewy, fudgy, and moist.

But we just had to go the extra mile,

And spread some coffee flavoured buttercream. YUM!

Then, we like to go further and push the limits,

with this poured on chocolate ganache.

Chocolate brownies with coffee frostings and chocolate ganache. Can you really say no to that?

Coffee Cream Brownies

(Taken from Brownies  & bars from Taste of home )

1/2 C butter

3 Ounces chopped Chocolate

2 eggs

1 C sugar

1 tsp Vanilla extract

2/3 C All purpose Flour

1/4 tsp Baking Soda


1 TBS whipping cream

1 tsp instant coffee granules

2 tbs butter, softened

1 C confectioner’s sugar


1 C ( 6 ounces ) semi sweet chocolate chips

1/3 C heavy whipping cream

1. In a microwave, melt butter and chocolate. Stir until smooth. Cool slightly. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Stir in chocolate mixture. Combine flour and baking soda, gradually add to the chocolate mixture.

2. Spread into a greased 8 inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centre comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

3. For the filling, combine cream and coffee granules in a small bowl. Stir until the coffee is dissolved. In a small bowl, cream butter and confectioners sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in coffee mixture, spread over brownies.

4. In a small saucepan, combine chips and cream. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is thickened. Cool slightly. Carefully spread over filling. Let stand for 30 minutes or until glaze is set. Cut into squares. Store in refrigerator.

      Hi claire, there is no cream cheese in here! lol

  11. May 10, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Oh gosh, these look great. I mean, these look astonishingly tasty. I think you chose the perfect toppings, with the perfect consistency.

    I’m saving this recipe.

    I need to know what kind of chocolate you are using in the brownie recipe. This sounds fantastic. I’m making this for our condo picnic.

        Hi! I’ve made this recipe many times but I’m curious to know – what kind of chocolate did you use for the ganache? It looks too dark to be semi-sweet chocolate chips (which usually ends up looking more of a lighter brown) Did you use dark chocolate chips for the ganache as well? I like the look of the darker chocolate ganache on yours better!

  18. May 11, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Nothing wrong with going a lil over the top, or a lot over the top, for that matter! Especially when it comes to brownies looking this moist and chewy *drools*

  19. May 11, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    Yes, yes, yes. Oh yes!

  20. May 15, 2011 at 5:54 am

  22. May 16, 2011 at 2:56 am

    I definitely could not say no to that. Those look sooo good.

  24. May 23, 2011 at 2:34 am

    Good Lord!

    These are so worth the weight gain that will no doubt follow! I’ll definitely have to share these as they’re so decadent that I can’t justify eating the entire pan by myself. I would definitely suggest using bittersweet chocolate in the ganache as the brownies and frosting are super sweet so I fear anything else would be overkill. Also, I had to double the coffee filling recipe as I couldn’t get my initial batch to cover the brownies, not even in a thin layer. Otherwise this recipe is perfection!

  26. February 16, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Oh my. Those look amazing. I may have to try them this weekend.
