This week, I will help you satisfy your sweet tooth. These desserts are great for parties as well as a quick snack.

1/2 cup Margarine

1-16ounce box Dark Brown Sugar

2 tablespoons Instant Coffee

1 tablespoon Hot Water

2 large Eggs

1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract

2 cups All-purpose Flour

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/8 teaspoon Salt

1/2 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350℉.

Coat a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a small saucepan, melt the margarine and brown sugar over low heat. Combine the instant coffee with the hot water to dissolve and combine with the brown sugar mixture in a mixing bowl. Stir and cool. Whisk together the eggs and vanilla; mix into the brown sugar mixture. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt and stir into the brown sugar mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. DO not over cook. Cool in pan and cut into squares.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
