Dark Chocolate Espresso Cookies

So remember when I featured Jacky from The Sweetest Petunia?
Remember how she shared her favorite recipe?
That just so happened to be a fabulous recipe for dark chocolate espresso cookies?
Uh... YUM.
Anyway, it called for a brownie mix... which Sugar Mama happens to have :)
But I still needed to make some changes to make it work.
So I slaved away (and was forced to eat a couple batches that "failed").
But they're ready.
And I feel like I should warn you:
They're really good.
Just be careful ok?
I'd hate to be responsible for tummy aches.
