Cappuccino Brownies

It's like a cappuccino, but soft, sweet, and without the caffeine crash. Cut your brownie bars into triangles for kicks. I keep a single plastic knife just for this purpose. It doesn't scratch my pan and it's easy to wash and reuse. You can glaze the bars after slicing. If you aren't taking the bars anywhere, DON'T slice them. Uncut brownies keep better. This recipe is from (affiliate link) "Good Housekeeping: Brownies" 2010.
