Fudgy Mocha Toffee Brownies

We had plans to go to Brooke and Joe's last night for dinner, and I was bringing dessert. In addition, George and Denise were popping by earlier in the day; Pat and George played golf, and Denise and Ryan and I went shopping. So I was looking for something to satisfy both events!

Cooking Light's recipe for Fudgy Mocha-Toffee Brownies fit the bill. Sort of. They were very good, but VERY sweet. For ME to say something is too sweet is really saying something... I think the problem was that I couldn't find toffee chips, so I used butterscotch. This would have been much better with either the toffee, plain chocolate chips, or maybe even peanut butter.

But... you live, you learn, right? In my book, there's no such thing as a bad brownie, so we're good.
