Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. + chilling

Makes

about 2-1/2 dozen

On the outside, these look like traditional brownies. When people bite in, though, are they surprised! It's almost like eating a rich filled chocolate candy. My husband and I are both teachers. We have two children, 7 and 3.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1-1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • FILLING:
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup seedless red raspberry jam
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening

Directions

  1. In a microwave, melt butter and chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. In a large bowl, beat eggs and brown sugar until blended. Dissolve coffee granules in water; add to egg mixture. Beat in chocolate until well blended. Combine flour and baking powder; stir into chocolate mixture just until blended.
  2. Spread in a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until brownies test done. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. For filling, in a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Cool. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Beat in jam; stir in melted chocolate. Spread over cooled brownies.
  4. For glaze, in a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over filling. Chill before cutting. Store in the refrigerator.
