Espresso Chocolate Chunk Brownies

Jazz Up Some Box Mix!
Who would have thought that just two ingredients could take a box mix of brownies from "eh" to "amazing!"?  Whenever my family has to bring a desert or treat to an event, we almost always fall back on either our famous chocolate chip cookies, or these espresso brownies.  These brownies have such a rich, chocolately taste, with just two secret ingredients separating them from the average box mix!  {hint: espresso powder and cinnamon}.
I highly recommend taking the few seconds to add these powders and chocolate chunks to your mix the next time you make brownies!  We had my boyfriend's family over for dinner last night, and even his mom {who's a dessert chef} loved them.  Pair it with some coffee ice cream and toasted pecans to make it especially tasty and fancy!


Note: if brownie mix doesn't have chocolate chunks in it, add them!

How to:
1.  Mix the dry ingredients together 
2.  Have the 1/4 cup of water in a measuring cup.  Add the egg and whisk with a fork
3.  Add the egg and the 1/3 cup vegetable oil. 
4.  Grease the pan {this box took a 9x9 pan} and pour the brownie mix in!  Follow instructions on the back of the box for cooking :)

Wouldn't these make such a simple and great gift for Valentines Day?
