“A chewy rich brownie that has a wonderful taste of coffee with the nice crunch of nuts & chocolate chips. I much prefer blond brownies over chocolate ones, the coffee is a great bonus to this classic! From the Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook (an amazing cookbook with many many wonderful recipes!!)”
