Hazelnut Mocha Brownies
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 25 min. + chilling
Very rich! I couldn't find the hazelnut coffee granules in any grocery stores in my area, so I settled for a powdered "hazelnut coffeehouse beverage mix". I used a heaping tablespoon of this in the batter, and instead of the vanilla extract for both the batter and frosting, I substituted hazelnut extract. I used mini-chocolate chips in the batter and the frosting. I did use more powdered sugar in the frosting as well. The cooking time seems to have a discrepancy, though. At 26 minutes, the batter was still not set, so it took close to 10 additional minutes to bake.The hazelnuts were a nice addition---it is not often that they are included in dessert recipes. My family really liked these brownies.
