Mocha & Macadamia Double Choc Brownies

Hi everyone and welcome to another month of the Chocolate Party. This months challenge was to make a chocolate treat using coffee as the complimentary ingredient.

I love my morning cup of coffee but this challenge was a difficult one. I am the only household member who is addicted to the coffee and I certainly didn’t want to be eating all the baked treats on my own!

Then I remembered how everyone loves my brownies and I decided I would adapt my double choc brownie recipe for the challenge.

I am pleased to report that it was a complete success. The brownies were delicious, I now have an empty cake platter and my waistline is intact.

About Julie


  1. These look terrific! Love the combo of flavors, and of course anything with chocolate demands some serious attention. πŸ˜‰ Super recipe – thanks so much.

  2. Oh yes, this looks marvellous and straightforward… but what to do with the rest of the condensed milk? Like you, I am glad to make sweet things my children love as they eat most of it, I can enjoy a little very much, but don’t have a chance to scoff the lot.

  3. Yum can’t imagine a better pick-me-up than a chocolate brownie amped up with coffee! Love the macadamias for contrast too.

  4. Both Dave and I drink coffee but he doesn’t like it when I bake with it at all! Lovely recipe πŸ™‚

  5. These look divine. I suspect anyone who thought they didn’t like coffee would be won over completely by them!

  6. Mm this looks great! I might try it with white choc instead of macadamia to make it triple choc – or would that be waaay too sweet?

  7. Love how this is a layered brownie, Julie. Great thinking to add espresso to this already very winning recipe =) Wish I could have a bite – just teensy one – right now =)

  8. glad to hear it turned out to be a success! would do with a slice right about now actually!

  9. I love layered brownies…and yours look irresistible, Julie!!!

  10. Julie: These brownies with macadamia look amazing…I wish I could have many of them with a good cup of milk or a scoop of ice cream.

  11. These sound great! I love that your brownies have two layers and call for condensed milk. I will have to try that!

  12. Wow….these look amazing! I love adding coffee to chocolate when baking. But these brownies….they look like pieces of fudge! Can’t wait to try these!

  13. I haven’t had brownies for….at least over 2 months. I think I have to make one myself or go get a really good one after I see your post! Love macadamia and these brownies look heavenly!!! Drool…

  14. They look fantastic Julie! And hehe yes I remember when we were travelling together how much you loved your coffee in the morning! πŸ™‚

  15. Yours look so good I am inspired to get the lead out and make them.

  16. Ah, I saw these in your “In my kitchen” post – was hoping I’d get to see the recipe! They look fabulous Julie – absolutely stuffed with nuts… yummy! Macadamia nuts aren’t that common here though sadly… Suppose I could sub walnuts maybe?

  17. Oh yes please, I’ll have to pieces.:)

  18. Wow these look so good they should be illegal. Definitely making these. You’ve inspired me to do a month of chocolate recipes on Pearls of Style. Here’s to putting on some extra kgs for August!

  19. I love the look of these brownies!

  20. Ohhhh these mocha brownies are so decadent πŸ™‚ YUM!!! Would love to make them for my colleagues but one of them is allergic to nuts do you think I could make them without the macadamias? ~

  21. I am the only one who drinks coffee over here too so I would be totally selfish and eat it all by myself πŸ˜€ Those look so delicious!

  22. Ha I had the same problem! I solved it by sending loads of cookies with my dad, who also loves coffee baked goods. And yours, btw, are gorgeous! Craving one now!

  23. Just looking at your brownies is making me so hangry, hungry for them and angry that I can’t try them =P

  24. You’re calling out to my sweet tooth on this one! Thanks so much for sharing on the Chocolate Party!

  25. Such a beautiful twist to a brownie! So many wonderful things going on in this recipe, I am not surprised you were left with an empty platter:-)
    P.S Apologies for the delayed visit. I am just back from an overseas travel!

  26. They look great! I’d definitely help you eat them if you were in danger of having to eat them all yourself πŸ˜‰
