Makes: 16 brownies
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 50 minutes
⅓ cup butter
1.5 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs coffee, or ½ tsp coffee extract
1 cup flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1- 8 oz package Heath Bars (preferably not melted), chopped
1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
2.Heat a medium sauce pot over medium heat. Add the butter and melt until it fully coats the bottom of the pan. Add the chocolate and melt completely. Remove from the heat immediately after the chocolate has melted.
3.In a separate bowl, whisk the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and coffee together. When the chocolate mixture has cooled, add that into the mix as well, whisking as you go to evenly distribute the heat.
4.Use a mesh strainer to sift the salt, baking powder, and flour into the chocolate mix. Use a rubber spatula to fold the mixture together, being careful not to over-mix.
5.Bake the brownies for 20 minutes, or until the brownies begin to pull away from the sides. Remove the brownies from the oven and top with the Heath Bars. Cover with foil and cool completely, at least 20 minutes. Cut into 2 x 2 inch squares and place into miniature cupcake liners to serve. Garnish with powdered sugar if desired.
