We’ve had a lot of late nights here lately, so I whipped up a batch of these brownies to snack on when I’m up making lip balm. Wake up and smell the coffee!

1 stick butter
6 Tbsp cocoa
1 Tbsp instant coffee
1 Tbsp water
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter over low heat and stir in cocoa, instant coffee and water. Remove from heat. Mix in sugar and allow to cool. Beat in eggs, then add vanilla, flour, and salt. Pour into greased pan (8×8) and bake for 25-30 minutes or until firm.
