Frosted Chocolate Chip Mocha Brownies

I’m a big mocha fan—how about you? I’m a big brownie fan, too, so you’d think I would have made mocha brownies a long time ago.

I modified that recipe slightly by adding mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter and making my frosting a little thicker. They turned out soooo good! These brownies are rich and very chocolaty, with a great hint of coffee flavor! The perfect dessert for all of you chocolate and coffee lovers out there!
