Starbuck's Chocolate Fudge Squares with Mocha Glaze

Starbuck’s Chocolate Fudge Squares with Mocha Glaze
Source: Starbucks

1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room
temperature (1 stick; see note)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Glaze:
1 generous cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup brewed double-strength coffee, preferably
made from dark-roasted beans

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan.

To make fudge squares: In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugar and egg.

In a small bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture. Then add the melted chocolate, being careful not to over-beat. Add the milk, vanilla and walnuts, stirring just to blend.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and the top springs back when pressed lightly, about 30 minutes. Allow the cake to cool completely. Meanwhile, make glaze.

To make glaze: In a medium bowl, combine the powdered sugar, butter, chocolate and vanilla extract. Stir in the coffee and whisk until smooth.

Refrigerate the glaze until cool, then pour over the top of the cake and cut the cake into squares.

NOTE: Use real butter or stick margarine. Do not substitute reduced-fat spreads; their higher water content often yields less-satisfactory results

My daughter loves every thing starbuck’s. With christmas comming, I’m puting a cook book together for her. Thank you.

Thank you sounds delicious

Look great. Will have to make it soon. I just love to cook, bake breads, and I make a mean venison stew. Hubby’s a great hunter and keeps the freezer full.:slight_smile: Ronisue

They sound wonderful. My daughter in-law is extremely alergic to nuts . What can I replace the walnuts for, or can I just leave the walnuts out.

I’m convinced these will be great if I can get them made . thanks

These sounds grt. I can’t wait to make them for Thanksgiving this year. It sounds like I shouldn’t keep them round the house for myself. LOL I’m in the process of losing weight. Don’t need to gain anymore. LOL

Thank you

I’ve made it, it seems not delicious as you instruct :frowning: I think because of my cooking talent. But for me, it’s very meaningful :slight_smile:
