    These are so adorable! Love the flavor combo too. I definitely need to keep them in mind for our Super Bowl party!

    These are so cute! I love fudgy brownies and making them espresso flavoured sounds like a perfect simple but effective twist.

    Sounds yummy – I wonder if there is a non alcohol version of Kahlua (I’m assuming that is alcohol, right??)

      Yes Kahlua is alcohol. You could definitely substitute it if you’re trying to avoid alcohol – I would try just plain black room temperature coffee!

    Great – thank you. Also, you are so creative! I love the idea of cutting the brownies with the little circles. So clever. Now if I could just do the frosting as nice, I’d be set. But I am going to make these!!

    These are so cute! I love the addition of Kahlua and espresso…way better than just chocolate on its own!

    would you make any changes to baking temp or time if you made them in a mini-muffin pan instead?

    I do not like coffee but for some reason have recently developed a taste for tiramasu – espresso must taste better to me than coffee??? Anyway, this sounds yummy and they are so cute, not to mention the vision I have of being able to eat the scraps as I cut out the circles!! lol!

    I was wondering… does anyone know if there is such a thing as decaf espresso? My hubby must be very careful with caffeine. Thanks!

    And thanks once again, Tessa, for a great recipe!!

      Thanks Pam! There is such a thing as decaffeinated instant espresso powder, though it’ll likely be more difficult to find. With the entire recipe calling for a total of 2 teaspoons of espresso powder, it is a very small amount of caffeine however.

    How would you change it to bake in mini muffin tins? It seems a shame to waste any of this awesome recipe by discarding anything not able to be cut with the cookie cutter…
