A thick mocha brownie topped with coffee buttercream and crumbled oreos. Is this what heaven tastes like? I think so.

I am a brownie connoisseur. I’ve loved them since I was a little girl, and will continue loving them until I am a very, very old girl.

To date, I have 34 brownie recipes on the site. And I love each and every one of them like they are my children. My brownie children.

And though you supposedly love all of your children equally, I do have to admit that these are, like, top 10% brownies.

The base is a slightly cakey mocha brownie made with lots of cocoa. I decided to go a bit lighter than a fudgy brownie to let the coffee buttercream and oreos shine.

The coffee buttercream may just be the best part of these heavenly squares. It’s flavorful and sweet and fluffy.

Of course, the oreos are also pretty amazing. They add in that crunch factor that I just love. And they look awesome.

Hope you enjoy these mocha brownies as much as I did. Pro tip: you can even drizzle a little coffee on top of the brownie for a sort of brownie affogato!

Happy weekend 🙂

RECIPE

Mocha Brownies with coffee frosting and oreos

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup strongly brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dutch cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs, room temp
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

For the frosting

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon strongly brewed coffee
  • 8 oreo cookies, crumbled

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line a 9"x9" glass pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Remove from microwave, stir in sugar, and melt again for 30 seconds. You want the sugars and butter to bubble up slightly, but not burn. This amount of time should do the trick.
  3. Remove mixture from microwave and stir in coffee. Allow to cool slightly before whisking the cocoa powder, eggs, and vanilla extract. Last, mix in flour and salt.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out mostly clean (a little batter is fine, it will turn into delicious fudgyness). Allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan. Allow to cool completely.
  5. To make the frosting, whip together all ingredients until light and fluffy. Frost brownies and sprinkle with crumbled oreos, then cut into 9 large squares.

I want to bake a batch of brownie children!! Especially if they have a hint of coffee flavor…BEST BROWNIE CHILDREN EVER.

These brownies are the best I’ve ever had! And the coffee frosting…yummmmmmmmy. I topped mine with chocolate shavings instead of oreos. Everyone goes crazy over them!

How exactly do you make strongly brewed coffee?
And is it the same cocoa powder for both parts?
I’ve never made brownies from scratch

Hi Jack! You just add extra coffee grounds to your coffee maker, resulting in a stronger brew. And yes, same cocoa powder for both (NOT hot cocoa powder).
