Coffee Meringue Brownie

I went to my parents house for the weekend and on Friday night my sister, godmother and her husband came over too. We had a lovely chicken casserole and then for dessery my Mum made a Coffee Meringue Brownie, it was delicious., the brownie lovely and fudgy and the meringue adding that mallowy squishiness. Probably one of the best things I've eaten in a while, nothing could stop me from going back for seconds!
