Mocha Brownies

I've been wanting to do more experimentation in the kitchen. The kids and I were throwing around ideas for different types of brownies and I realized that we had never had mocha brownies. I started with our favorite fudgy brownie recipe and took out some of the cocoa, added some instant coffee, and removed some of the vanilla extract. The final product was sensational! These will definitely be made again and again.

Mocha Brownies

1 Cup butter
3/4 Cup cocoa
1/4 Cup Folger's Instant Coffee Crystals, crushed with a spoon
2 Cups sugar
4 eggs
1 Cup flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Pre-heat oven to 350. Grease 13"x11" pan. Set aside. Melt butter in saucepan. Remove from heat and add sugar, cocoa and vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Stir in eggs, one at a time. Add flour and stir until incorporated. Do NOT over beat. Bake in 350 degree for 27 minutes.
