Mocha Brownies

A brownie that has ~adult themes~. In all seriousness it’s coffee thrown into the batter and the frosting. Gives it that classy grown up feeling, with the fun of being a brownie. Really easy, one bowl, (less the frosting) and 25 minutes in the oven. Floofly mocha frosting to top things off and if the inner kid in you desires, throw some rainbow sprinkles on top.

If you have made these, I would love to share your creations. Feel free to send a photo or tag on Instagram @bairdsbaking . Find more recipes and reels over there as well!
