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 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
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.
Now to make them red, white, and blue!

    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:)
