  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extra
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Peanut Butter Frosting:
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter - softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • Sprinkles and candies for decorating - optional


  • Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour six mini skillet pans. Set aside.
  • In a heat-safe bowl over simmering water, melt together the chocolate chips and butter. Allow this to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the eggs, instant coffee, vanilla and sugar. Slowly stir the warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Gently stir this into the chocolate mixture until just combined.
  • Then evenly divide the batter into the prepared skillets. (You will use about 1/2 cup of batter per skillet.)
  • Place the skillets on a baking sheet and bake for 25–30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of each brownie comes out clean. While your brownies cool, prepare the frosting.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and peanut butter on medium to combine.
  • Add the confectioners’ sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix on medium speed until creamy, scraping the sides of the bowl when necessary.
  • Finally, add the cream and beat on high until the mixture is smooth.
  • Once your brownies have cooled, frost them and add sprinkles or candies, if desired.
