The brownie love that is! I admit it, I’m on a brownie kick. I don’t see anyone I’m feeding them to complaining! These brownies were fudgy and yummy! Even Grumpy liked these – and he normally won’t eat anything with toffee bits because he doesn’t like “crunchy”!

These brownies went to work and they were all gone before noon. I didn’t bother to move the box once it was empty and people kept coming in and looking in the box hoping for a brownie. I know, what a tease. I even had one faculty say that the box sitting there was her favorite box and she gets excited when she see’s it next to the coffee maker. I would have to say that the faculty and students in my department are not only well fed but spoiled rotten!

Since I posted my Junior Mint Brownies I have seen even more brownie posts popping up. Check them out for some more brownie ideas!

    It must be brownie season! Toffee and coffee in a brownie is awesome, but the fact that they are light is even better!

    Let me get this straight. Chocolate, coffee, AND toffee? yum yum!

    Hi Honey B- how many pieces do you cut these into to get a serving size of 3 WW points? 9? 12?

    They look wonderful. I’m wondering how they would taste if you subbed half whole wheat flour. I’ve been experimenting w/ that lately!

  15. HoneyB January 22, 2009 at 2:41 pm - Reply

    Thanks for all the comments!

    Lori – They should be cut into 20 pieces. Sorry, wish it was bigger, but really, they aren’t too small. I cut 4 lines one way, 5 lines the other direction.

    I’m begging you for mercy . . .! How am I ever going to lose the Christmas weight if I keep seeing these gooey, fudgy, chocolate-y squares of goodness?
