Coffee & Caramel Brownies

Serves 8

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

You can never go wrong with the three C's: coffee, caramel, and chocolate. This recipe beautifully brings all three together in the prefect blend of warm, gooey chocolate with a pinch of bold flavor from the coffee. And don't forget that nice drizzle of caramel – it's national caramel day after all!


  • About 7 oz. dark chocolate, chopped
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp. instant espresso powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 tbsp. caramel syrup (ice cream topping)
  • chocolate chips and/or nuts (optional)


Preheat your grill to 350°F and prepare for indirect grilling.

Using a double boiler over medium-low heat, melt the chocolate stirring frequently. Allow the chocolate to cool for a minute or two while you assemble the rest of the ingredients.

Whisk together the butter and sugar, then add the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla.

Sift together the flour, espresso powder, salt, and baking soda, then add it to the butter mixture, stirring until just combined.

Fold the melted chocolate into the batter, followed by any mix in’s, like chocolate or nuts. Pour the brownie batter into a waiting, greased, 8 x 8-inch baking pan. Drizzle the top with the 3 tbsp. of caramel topping.

Bake using indirect heat for 35 minutes, or until the brownies have just set and the edges are slightly crisp. It may take a little longer depending on the temperature outdoors. About halfway through, rotate the pan so that all of the edges of the brownie get some heat.

Serve hot or cold, however, you like them. Add fruit, whipped cream; French vanilla ice cream and more caramel topping.
