I sure hope you’re in the mood for chocolate today. Me? I’m always in the mood for chocolate. Especially brownies. Especially mocha truffle brownies with a chocolate ganache frosting.  Kind of like these.

It’s been awhile since I made brownies from scratch. I’ll be honest, I think the box mixes are pretty darn good :) But when the recipe is as easy as this one, it’s hard to find an excuse not to make them.

I’m extremely partial to mocha recipes. It might stem from the fact that mochas are also my favorite hot beverage or it could be that the coffee really intensifies the chocolate flavor, making it even more rich and fabulous. Probably both.

  1. Oh, Trish… what have you done? Just when I was trying to get myself eating better for the new year, you draw me back into chocolate heaven with these delicious things. They sound amazing…especially with the mocha flavor! Thanks for sharing. I’m pinning to try soon! Hope your 2015 is off to a great start!
    Blessings,

  2. You mean mocha crack brownies, right? Because these would not make it two seconds near my face. Anything brownie is a goner in my house, of course, but when you add ganache to that, there’s no way any brownie is coming out alive. These are magnificent!

  5. Um, hello brownie goodness!!!! I love a little coffee added to my chocolate treats!!! These sound amazing!

  6. I 100% agree – coffee totally makes brownies taste better! I love that you topped these with ganache – I’d be the person licking the ganache off the top first:)

  7. Oh yum! I’d be all over these, especially with the addition of coffee flavors :)

  8. Love the mocha in these brownies! Oh my gosh, that ganache is totally calling my name!

  9. Help,,,,,,,,,,11tbls of butter are not equal to 2/3 cup???

  10. You know me Trish, I’m ALWAYS in the mood for chocolate too! And that ganache? I’d eat an entire bowl of it with a spoon. No shame. :) Pinned!

  21. Did you let this cool completely in the pan before adding the ganache? This looks amazing! Can’t wait to try this out :)

  22. These are phenomenal!! I’m not a chocoholic, so I do prefer them without the ganache, but my chocolate loving friends think they are perfection. I’ve made them several times now and officially declare them to be the best brownie EVER! I have tweaked it just a bit. Instead of using all white sugar, I have been using coconut sugar for half of what is required. They’re not quite as sweet, and I’m kidding myself that they’re a tad bit healthier.

  23. These are fabulous! Even a person who doesn’t like coffee went back for more! Keeper recipe! Thanks.

  24. Can you freeze them

  25. Stephanie says:

    Hi, just wondering: salted butter or unsalted butter?!

  26. My brownies came out with a little thicker meringue like top with air between that and the actual bar. What could I have done wrong? I did use a gf flour mix. Thanks!
