Red White, and Blue Brownies.

I hope you are all having an amazing Independence Day/Fourth of July!  I kinda love America, how about you?

Almost everyone is off from work.  BBQ in full swing!  Fireworks – my favorite part.  The lights, the sound, the atmosphere, I love it all!   I love the food too.. Dessert anyone?

So I usually make cupcakes, but this year I wanted chocolate.  Not just chocolate, I wanted brownies!

Red, White, and Blue Brownies

Slightly Adapted from Tasty Kitchen
Serves 20 – Prep 15 minutes – Cook 25-30 minutes
1 Cup Butter
2 Cups White Sugar
4 Whole Eggs

1/2 Teaspoon Coffee Extract (or 1 teaspoon strong coffee)
2/3 Cups Cocoa Powder
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2-1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Grease a 9×13 pan.  In a small bowl microwave the butter until melted, then add into large bowl with other ingredients (not chocolate chips) Mix well then add in chocolate chips – pour into greased pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes.  Never over bake,  always remember they continue to cook while cooling.

    Those look sinful. Wonder how easy it would be to make them gluten free!

    I was a little concerned about red white and blue brownies, I must admit! Thankfully, these are cute and still appetizing:)
