1 ¼ cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

*I used 1 Tbsp rum and 1 tsp vanilla

  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with shortening or cooking spray.
  2. In large bowl, stir together brownie mix, pouch of chocolate syrup (from brownie mix box), 1/4 cup of the coffee, the oil and egg until well blended. Pour into pan.
  3. Bake 22 to 24 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Drizzle remaining 1/4 cup coffee over warm brownies. Cool completely in pan on cooling rack, at least 1 hour.
  4. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in rum extract; set aside. In chilled small bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture. Spread over cooled brownies.
