Breaking Bad BlackHat Brownies

A nice pick-me-up mocha-ish treat. Versatile. I suggest using the strongest most wicked coffee you can. I use Death Wish Coffee, at twice the caffeine, but for taste, you may want to use whatever brand you prefer tastes better.



Optional = 1 Cup chopped Nuts of your choice (be mindful of those with nut allergies)


  1. Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit (177 Celsius)
  2. Add Cocoa & Water to Butter.
  3. Add Espresso shots and bring to a boil.
  4. Mix together Flour, Sugar, Soda & Salt.
  5. Add boiling Cocoa mixture & stir until blended.
  6. Add Buttermilk, Eggs & Vanilla. Stir Until smooth.
  7. Pour into a greased baking pan of suitable shape.

Making the Frosting:

  1. Add Cocoa & Buttermilk to Butter and bring to a boil in a medium sauce pan.
  2. Add Sugar & Vanilla, stirring until smooth consistency.
