A rich, coffee-infused dark chocolate brownie topped with a layer of crunchy toffee and drizzled with a dark chocolate icing.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven following directions on box for type of pan used. Grease 17x12x1-inch baking pan; set aside. Dissolve coffee granules in 1/4 cup HOT water. Add remaining 1/4 cup water.
  2. Prepare brownie mix as described on box using 5 eggs, coffee-water mixture and oil. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in center of oven 28 to 32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Immediately spread toffee bits evenly over top. Carefully cover tightly with foil. Place on wire rack; cool completely.
  4. Place frosting in small, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 15 seconds. Stir to blend. If needed, microwave another 15 seconds. Do NOT overheat. Heat just until frosting flows slightly. Place in resealable plastic bag. Cut a very small hole in bottom corner. Squeeze bag to drizzle frosting evenly over toffee bits.
  5. Allow frosting to set (the picture depicts icing still warm and oozing as a serving suggestion). Cut into bars and serve.
Tips:
  1. (English) Toffee bits can be found on baking aisle near chocolate morsels, nuts, etc. Covering pan while cooling ensures the toffee adheres to brownie layer.
  2. Do NOT use a smaller pan to bake this quantity. It will overflow pan.
  3. For smaller occasions, cut recipe in half and use a 13x9-inch pan following baking directions on box. Recommend using 3 eggs.
  4. If a nonstick pan is used, cut brownies using a plastic knife to avoid scratching surface of pan.
