I LOVE dark chocolate brownies so much, especially when combined with marshmallow and a graham cracker crust 😛
Replacing the water with coffee in my recipe makes the chocolate taste even more chocolatey! It really is amazing.
SHOULD I USE A GLASS OR METAL PAN TO BAKE BROWNIES?
You can use a metal pan and I would recommend decreasing the baking time by 5 minutes. Metal pans heat up faster and can produce chewier brownies.
These simple changes to the recipe on the box include:
- An extra egg! This is key for a chewy brownie. BUT. Whether or not it’s “extra” depends on the mix you’re using – some call for one egg, some call for two. You will be using two eggs for this recipe.
- Use coffee instead of water. You won’t be able to tell there’s coffee in the final product, but coffee makes chocolate taste even more chocolatey!
