Mud Pie Mocha Brownies
I have to tell you they were a bit of an experiment and got mixed reviews...my son wouldn't touch them because there is coffee in the frosting and pretty much everyone else loved them. I also didn't get any process photos.
1 Family-size brownie mix and all the ingredients according to package instructions
1-2 cups Chocolate cookie crumbs (like Oreos)
1 stick butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4-1/3 cup brewed coffee (cold)
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix up brownie batter according to package directions. Stir in 1 cup of cookie crumbs. Pour into 13x9 inch pan and bake according to package. Allow to cool completely.
For frosting, in large mixing bowl, combine butter, powdered sugar. salt, cocoa and vanilla. Slowly pour in brewed coffee and mix until smooth and spreadable. Fold in 1/3-2/3 cup cookie crumbs. Spread over cooled brownies. Sprinkle remaining cookie crumbs over the brownies.
