Chocolate Coffee Squares

These are rich, chocolaty, decadent chocolate coffee squares. They are quite heavenly and delicious! Here is the recipe for the fudgey brownie base, and tomorrow I will share the icing recipe and decoration directions.

Rich Coffee Brownies
1 cup hard margarine, melted
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups granulated (white) sugar
1 Tablespoon instant coffee granules
1 Tablespoon boiling water
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose (plain) flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x13 inch rectangular baking pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix the butter and cocoa until smooth. Cream in the sugar until well blended. Dissolve the coffee in the water and stir it in. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla  Stir in the flour and salt, do not overmix. Spread into prepared pan. Bake for about 25 minutes, until just set.
