Mocha Brownie

Hi
When Radhika of Tickling Palates told me about this Bake Along, I was over joyed...I had another reason to bake:-)And when I wrote to Joyce asking her if I could join...she readily agreed and said anyone could. So if any of you would like to bake along please do!!!. I had bookmarked this Brownie for a very long time and finally had a chance to bake this

Eggs 2
