This brownie is no ordinary brownie. It is a chocolate overload with chocolate, chocolate chips, and coffee; these remarkable threesome make for an over-the-top brownie that will impress!

They are poured into a baking sheet. A full baking sheet, people! Baked and then chilled overnight so the flavors marry and become one. 

When cut after a full night of chilling in the fridge, they have this thick, awesome firm, shape to them and the aroma is outrageous!
