Mexican Mocha Brownies

It's been quite a while since I've made these because they are so rich pero muy delicioso!

1 stick butter
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon finely ground fair trade mexican coffee beans
a pinch of cayenne, optional

Melt butter and chocolate together over a water bath and stir to combine.  Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla.  Mix well.  Stir in remaining ingredients until combined.  Spread mixture into 8x8 pan lined with buttered parchment paper.  Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes until set.  Cool slightly before removing.  Cool completely in fridge.  Cut into 1½” (or so) squares.

Mexican Mocha Glaze
¼ pound powdered sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons kahlĂșa, heated
milk and/or coffee to thin
whole coffee beans

Blend all ingredients (except milk) until smooth in a food processor.  Add milk as needed to thin glaze enough that it will pour.  Pour glaze over brownies to coat completely and top each one with a coffee bean.

Makes about 20 little brownies.
