The title of this recipe says it all ....these are definitley Killer Kahlua Brownies! My favorite brownies yet and my son's favorite also. They were gone in no time at all. You can barely taste the kahlua but it does kick up the chocolate flavor. I'm telling you that these brownies, to me, are over the top good!!! I found the recipes on Anna's site Cookie Madness. I've made a number of recipes she has posted and have never been disappointed. Hope you visit her site a if you are not familiar with it.
I had something happen to me this morning that was very upsetting. Went with a good friend to IHOP for breakfast and had my usual Swedish crepes with Lingonberries. Well I was almost done with my meal and wham I chewed on something hard. It looked like a piece glass to me about the size of a small tooth. Of course I immediately called over the managment who assured me this was just very hard plastic. They asked if I had used any syrup, since that is served in hard plastic dispensers. I didn't since they have those delicious lingonberries on the crepes along with lingonberry butter. They were very apologetic and didn't charge for my crepes but it was very eye opening for me. Wonder how much goes on in restaurants that we aren't aware of and don't see. Anyhow, the whole thing just was very unsettling to me.
