Yeah. You read that title right. I am a sucker for dark chocolate. I am also a sucker for anything that has the slightest coffee flavor for it.  If my calculations are correct, I should be a sucker for these brownies. And I am. And then are healthy. So we ALL win.

When I first received the Fit Frappe perk from Klout, I knew that I had endless opportunities for new and exciting coffee flavored foods right at my finger tips!!!

Love the mixture of the chocolate and espresso.  It is kind of like a chocolate covered espresso bean.. but not in bean form. In brownie form.  I am sure you can sub the Fit Frappe for another flavor protein.. but then they won’t be espresso flavor. And I can only promise you the ESPRESSO brownies will be delicious!
