Bourbon Fudge Brownies - Yummy Treat!

I live in Baltimore.  You don't have to follow football to know that the Ravens are in the playoffs this weekend.  Everyone and their dog wore purple on Friday.  The Aquarium, along with half of downtown, is covered in purple lights.  So if you (or your significant other) plans to hunker down for the big game, do so with a plate of these amazing Bourbon Fudge Brownies.  They are from Cooking Light, so feel free to have more than one!


  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°.
Bring bourbon to a boil in a small saucepan; remove from heat. Add chocolate chips, stirring until smooth.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt, stirring with a whisk.
Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well combined. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Add flour mixture and bourbon mixture to sugar mixture, beating at low speed just until combined.
Spread batter into a 9-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack.

  1. Slight problem... the alcohol content would have me asleep before the end of the first quarter (yes, you know me, I am that much of a lightweight!)
