Tiramisu Brownies..super delicious!

Last year I found this recipe in one of my many cookbooks in the Christmas section. I thought it would be difficult...oh no!! It's easy and I swear...the BEST brownie recipe I have ever made. It's good warm or chilled...I think chilled is WAY better!!

The recipe:

12 squares (1oz each) semisweet chocolate
1 cup butter softened
*******
1 1/3 cups plus 1/4 cup sugar divided
*******
8 eggs
*******
1 cup cake flour
1/4 cup instant coffee granules or espresso powder
*******
2 cartons Mascarpone cheese
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
*******
1 teaspoon baking cocoa


In a large microwave-safe mixing bowl, melt chocolate. Stir until smooth; cool slightly. Beat in butter. Gradually beat in 1-1/3 cups sugar. Add six eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.Combine the flour and instant coffee granules; add to the chocolate mixture. Beat on low speed just until combined; set aside.

For filling, in a small bowl, beat the cheese, vanilla, and remaining sugar and eggs until smooth.

Pour 4 cups of chocolate batter into a greased 13-in. X 9-in. X 2-in. baking pan. Spread with the filling. Top with the remaining batter, spreading evenly to completely cover filling.Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until center is almost set and brownies begin to pull away from the sides of pan. Cool on a wire rack. Dust with cocoa. Cut into squares. Store in the refrigerator. Makes 3 dozen.

These are so easy to make and so very delicious. I mentioned that I found this recipe in the Christmas dessert section of one of my cookbooks. I think it fits the holidays just perfectly! You will be sure to get many, many compliments.
I've made them for a girls night out...a party at my former job and just for us here at home. It is so good...beyond words good!
I use a slightly larger pan to bake them in because I like them a little thinner.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I hope you enjoyed it. And I can't wait to read all of your delicious recipes! See more great ideas at Beverly's Pink Saturday post!!
