Let me give you the back store behind this
recipe. Last year for Halloween my friends and I decided to dress up like the cast from Death Becomes Her. We won a local Halloween costume contest and I heard that Lance Bass, former boyband heartthrob now XM radio host, was having a costume contest. I entered our photo, and we actually won the Grand Prize for the national contest. What did we win??? 3 tiny bags of Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle… I ate the 3 bags in one sitting leaving none for my friends. I decided to create my own version of the Grand Prize… Please enjoy this recipe and make it for your friends this Holiday Season.
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg white
1/3 cup flour
3 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9 by 13 baking sheet with parchment paper. You must use parchment paper or it will stick.
***Pro Tip: spray the pan first with a small amount of nonstick spray before you line it with paper. The oil will hold the paper to the pan***
2. Add flour, cocoa powder, coffee powder, baking soda and salt and mix for about a minute until the batter is smooth.
3. Evenly spread the batter in prepared pan with a spatula.
4.Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips on top the brownies. Return to the oven and bake for another 7 to 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely. The brownies will crisp up as it cools. Once cooled break up into desired sized pieces and store in an airtight container. Makes a great gift.
