YUM! I love these brownies! I got this recipe from my friend, Lanae! I have known Lanae since I first moved to Omaha - she was one of my first friends - play groups and Bunko! Thank you Lanae for this yummy recipe! I made this just before taking our girls back to college.
You will love these if you like Kahlua! I couldn't stay out of them!
21 oz pkg brownie mix
1/2 cup Kahlua
1/2 cup oil
Mix brownie mix with the next three ingredients. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 according to box directions. Don't over bake. Cool.
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp Kahlua
1 tsp instant coffee
2-3 tsp milk
In a small saucepan or microwave, heat 2 Tbsp Kahlua with the instant coffee. Cool slightly. In a medium bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla, Once coffee/Kahlua mixture is slightly cooled, add to powdered sugar and butter mixture. Beat together until smooth, creamy and of desired spreading consistency. Spread over cooled brownies.

In a small saucepan or microwavable bowl, melt chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally. Once melted, drizzle in desired pattern over frosting.
Store in the refrigerator. These are also great to make ahead and freeze.
