Frangelico Brownies

“I had a bottle of Frangelico in my cupboard from a recipe I had tried years ago and wanted to find a way to use it. One of the other recipes on my wish list was a really rich, moist brownie. This recipe checks both boxes. It is fantastically rich, and because of the black cocoa powder (which you can find online), they come out jet black. Black cocoa powder is what is used to make Oreos! Frangelico is super expensive, so brandy can be substituted and they still come out great. The subtle hints of coconut round out this really nice brownie.” – April Ferre
