3/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
5 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate
1/4 cup extra-strong brewed coffee
5 Tablespoons butter, at room temperature
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Line a 9x9-inch baking dish with aluminum foil that goes up the sides for easy removal later and grease lightly with butter.

Stir in the sugar.

stir in the vanilla and the flour.
Use a whisk to mix all until smooth.
Pour into the prepared pan and place into the preheated oven.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove and place onto a cooling rack.
While the brownies are cooling, make the buttercream filling.
Place the white chocolate and whipping cream into a medium size saucepan and use low heat to melt the chocolate. Stir continuously until melted and combined into the cream.
Remove the saucepan from the stovetop and stir in the milk.
Transfer to a bowl and place into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to cool.
Using an electric mixer beat the butter in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add the confectioners' sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
Now beat in the cooled white chocolate mixture until buttercream is creamy and light.
Take the brownie from the tin and remove the aluminum foil. Slice the brownie into two layers.
Spread the buttercream over one layer of the brownie and put the second layer of brownie on top. Place into the refrigerator until the buttercream hardens slightly.
While brownies with buttercream are chilling make the ganache.
Chop up the chocolate into small chunks. Brew a small pot of strong coffee.

Remove from the heat and drop in the butter. Whisk until creamy.
Allow the ganache to cool, stirring occasionally.
The ganache is ready when the mixture gets nice and thick.
Remove the brownie from the refrigerator and spread the ganach on top.
