Mighty Monk Cold Brew Brownies

It’s a well known fact that chocolate and coffee compliment each other rather well. Guided by this universal truth we spent hours toiling away, clad in oven mitts and little more, to create this heavenly Cold Brew Coffee Brownie recipe. Had this recipe been created by the monks of ancient times, we have no doubt it would have remained a heavily guarded and precious secret. Luckily, we’re no good at secrets….
