I’ve always been a die hard black coffee drinker, only picking up a mocha at Starbucks maybe a couple of times a year… except for that one dangerous fall when they offered the chile mocha in stores. Way too much of my precious disposable income went to my local Starbucks that fall, and way too many of those mochas went into me.

Well, this week I was looking at the dregs of my most recent batch of Crofton cold brew coffee… and I was looking at a box of Baker’s Corner brownie mix… and I ran across this lifehacker article on using coffee instead of water in baking mixes… and it was like a light bulb went on inside my head.

Let’s jazz up ALDI’s Baker’s Corner brownie mix!

You know how it’s always more fun to doctor up a box of brownie mix than to enjoy it plain? So here’s a super easy all ALDI recipe for chile mocha brownies, taking advantage of the awesome cold brew coffee from the Crofton cold brew coffee system (or any brewed coffee would likely do!), a  box of Baker’s Corner brownie mix, chocolate chips, and a little vanilla + cinnamon + spice.

These are darn tasty on their own, but even better topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream; the cool creaminess of the ice cream offsets the cinnamon spice kick of the chile mocha brownies to perfection. And these are soooo good! If you also are missing those chile mochas from Starbucks, try the brownie + ice cream alternative here and let me know what you think.
