Toffee-Coffee Brownies

I’ve been craving toffee and chocolate – a wonderful combination. Especially the toffee from Azure Chocolat! (It is delicious and what I will be using for this recipe!) Check out my Azure Chocolat review! (Seriously if you are on Long Island GO HERE!) OK, let’s get to the recipe!

Toffee-Coffee Brownies

Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens 

Ingredients

  • 1 19.8 – 21 ounce package brownie mix (Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix)
    • All ingredients called for to make the brownies
  • 1/2 cup toffee pieces (Azure Chocolat toffee) or your favorite toffee
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons instant espresso powder or instant coffee crystals
  • 3/4 cup canned vanilla frosting (Betty Crocker)
  • 1 tablespoon Irish cream liqueur or coffee liqueur
  • 1/4 cup toffee pieces (Azure Chocolat toffee)
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with foil, extending the foil up and over the edges of the pan. Grease foil very well (Earth Balance Vegan Butter works well); set aside.
  2. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions, except stir the 1/2 cup toffee pieces and the espresso powder into batter. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes.
  4. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Remove baked mixture from pan by lifting foil. Make sure your brownies are cooled COMPLETELY before you frost them – a cool brownie is a happy brownie! :)
  5. In a small bowl, combine vanilla frosting and liqueur.
  6. Spread frosting mixture onto cooled brownies. Sprinkle with the 1/4 cup toffee pieces. Cut into bars.
  7. Serve with rice whipped cream and your favorite gluten free ice cream! (or non-dairy ice cream)

ENJOY!!
