  • 1 cup Sugar Granulated
  • ½ cup Brown sugar
  • ¾ cup Butter Unsalted
  • ¼ cup Coffee Strongly brewed
  • ½ cup Cocoa powder Unsweetened
  • 1 tsp Espresso powder
  • 3 Eggs Large room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Flour All-purpose
  • ¼ cup Walnuts Roughly chopped
Coffee glaze:
  • tbsp Coffee Strongly brewed
  • 1 cup Sugar Powdered
  • ¼ cup Sprinkles


  1. In a deep microwave safe-bowl, add butter and melt in the microwave.
  2. Stir in granulated sugar and brown sugar and melt again for 30 seconds OR until the sugar and butter start to bubble slightly. Make sure not to burn this mixture.
  3. Place this saucepan in the freezer for 10 minutes so as to cool down the mixture slightly.
  4. Add brewed coffee, cocoa powder, espresso powder, eggs, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
  5. Add flour and mix until just combined.
  6. Stir in the walnuts.
  7. Pour this batter in a rectangular pan (Dimensions: 9x9x2), lined with foil paper and sprayed with oil. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-28 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out with a few sticky crumbs. If it comes out dry, you have over-baked your brownies.
  8. Allow the brownies to cool down completely while you prepare the coffee glaze.
  1. In a mixing bowl, mix together the brewed coffee and powdered sugar until glaze is thick and smooth.
  1. Use a sharp knife to cut square shaped brownie pieces.
  2. Spread a little glaze on top of each piece and toss some sprinkles. Enjoy!
