Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt together butter, chocolate chips and unsweetened chocolate in top of double boiler until smooth. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature. In large bowl, whisk together eggs, espresso powder, vanilla and sugar. Stir in cooled chocolate mixture; combine well. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts. Pour into buttered 15-by-10-inch baking pan. Bake 30 minutes in preheated oven. Let cool completely in pan on rack. Cover and chill overnight. In large bowl, whip vanilla frosting until light and fluffy, using electric mixer. Use food coloring to dye frosting deep orange color. Using favorite cookie cutters such as pumpkins, cats or leaves, cut shapes out of chilled brownies, carefully loosening from pan with spatula. Decorate brownies with frosting. Makes about 1 dozen.
