Chocolate Brownies, minus the Fail

Remember a while ago when I made brownies?  Yeah.  Well I can now push that out of my memory because not only do I have a better recipe, but I baked them without injury, tears, or permanent damage to my kitchen.

This wonderful brownie recipe was sent to me by Angela, a fellow chocoholic who clearly has good taste.  They're fudgy, moist, but not too dense (so you can eat lots!), and I love how they're made with real cocoa instead of chocolate chips.  

They're definitely my new favourite.  I didn't have any instant coffee, so I couldn't make the recommended icing, but I just whipped up a simple icing sugar buttercream with some cocoa and it worked great.
