More About This Recipe
  • These triple espresso brownies are true to their name: there are three layers to these sweet squares, and each layer gets a delicious boost from instant espresso. Why espresso, you ask? For the serious chocolate fans out there, using strong coffee or espresso in desserts enhances the flavor of the chocolate (now that’s a partnership we can get behind!). In the case you have leftovers, you can store these brownies in a tightly sealed container for three to four days. Want to try your hand at some more brownie recipes? We have plenty for you to choose from!
