White Chocolate Chip Coffee Brownies

Starting my dessert entries on this blog with brownies is only fitting, since brownies top my very long list of favorite desserts. Honestly, I am not really a cake kind of gal (I mean, I will eat a slice if you put it front of me!) but I am DEFINITELY a brownie girl.

The brownie recipe I used is so tasty and honestly easy to make – it’s just a couple extra steps compared to using a box recipe. I add a layer of white chocolate chips and ground coffee to make it stand out from the usual party brownie.

I start with mixing the wet and dry ingredients separately. Then I choose to fold the wet into the dry, but you can fold dry into wet if thats your baking preference!

All the dry ingredients come together

I stir together and just like the box recipes always say, lumps are just fine.

I combine a mixture of white chocolate chips with ground coffee and add a layer between the two brownie layers.

I wish it spread more evenly, but you get the picture.

Then its all done and ready to go into the oven. This gooey one is all mine for later!
