  • cups (265g) chocolate morsels or chunks, semi-sweet
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup chocolate chunks, for sprinkling on top


  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  • Brew a cup of coffee. You will only need 3 tablespoons in this recipe. (Enjoy the rest!)
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, and coffee. Cook over medium heat until boiling.
  • Remove from heat and stir in chopped chocolate until melted and smooth.
  • DON'T BE WORRIED if chocolate looks like it's seized, it will relax when the egg is added.

  • Pour into a parchment lined 8x8 pan, sprinkle with chocolate (optional).
