Adults Only Brownies

These brownies are not for those of you, who are *faint of heart* when it comes to cholesterol or calories!

2 sticks butter
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. cocoa
6 eggs, separated
1 tbsp. Of your favorite coffee liqueur
1 c. sifted flour
2 c. nuts

Cream butter, blend in sugar and cocoa. Stir in egg yolks; when well blended, fold in by hand sifted flour, chopped nuts, egg whites which have been beaten to stiff peaks and liqueur. Pour into long pan (8 x 12 inch or similar). Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. After cooling, spread with coffee icing.


1 stick butter
1/2 c. cocoa
1/2 c. cold coffee, (the stronger the better.)
1 tbsp. of your favorite coffee liqueur
1 box powdered sugar
Pinch of salt

Cream butter until whipped light. Alternate sugar, coffee and cocoa (cocoa depends on ones taste for cocoa, up to 1 cup can be used). Add liqueur and pinch of salt and blend thoroughly.

You may use more liqueur if you wish, if you do, adjust the amount of cold coffee or add more powdered sugar to get the desired consistency.

OK! If you must serve these brownies to the kids, substitute vanilla for the liqueur.
