We were recently invited to a friends house for dinner, they are from Poland, and had just come back from 6 weeks traveling the country. The photographs and stories were wonderful, the dinner was absolutely fabulous, the company was outstanding, and the conversation was fascinating. It was a wonderfully international, very well traveled group of people.
While I was out shopping, I saw this gorgeous pottery dish from Poland, and had to pick one up for the hostess gift. I didn’t want to take it empty, so made these Truffle Brownies to fill it.


1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
2/3 cup butter
1/3 cup brewed coffee
3 eggs
1 3/4 cups brown sugar
1 cup flour

Heat oven to 325F.
Grease and flour a 13 by 9 inch baking pan, set aside.
Melt chocolate and butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in coffee until well combined.
Cool to room temperature.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat eggs with electric mixer until foamy. Add sugar and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Reduce speed, beat in chocolate mixture. Stir in flour until combined. Spread batter in prepared pan.
Bake for 45 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.
