Tracing creamy espresso swirls through brownie batter is only half the fun of this mocha-flavored bar. The real party starts when each serving of baked brownie gets doused in coffee-flavored liqueur. So whether you’re in the mood for a drink or dessert this holiday season, ask yourself: Why not both? MORE+ LESS-

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom of 9-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray. In small bowl, mix cream cheese and sugar with spoon until smooth. Add flour, egg white and espresso powder; mix until well blended. Set aside.
  • 2
    Make brownie batter as directed on box, adding reserved egg yolk. Reserve 1/2 cup brownie batter. Spread remaining batter in pan. Spoon filling by tablespoonful dollops evenly onto batter, making 3 rows by 3 rows. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the reserved brownie batter in center of each filling dollop. Draw knife through mixture in four straight lines horizontally, then vertically for swirled design.
  • 3
    Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool 30 minutes on cooling rack. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until chilled. Cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. To serve, place brownie square on each serving plate. Drizzle 1 teaspoon liqueur over each brownie, and serve. Store leftover brownies covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • A drizzle of coffee-flavored liqueur over the baked brownie is a lovely and authentic white Russian touch, but if you prefer, you can certainly leave it off. The brownies are just as delicious on their own.
  • Espresso powder can be found in most grocery stores. The espresso gives our cheesecake a nice swirl as well as a jolt of coffee flavor.
