I mean, the title kind of says it all. We love booze. We love brownies. So, naturally, it was only a matter of time before we combined the two.
Not all alcohol or all brownie mix is created equal, though, so be fucking picky. Like, don’t go pouring tequila into the store brand cake brownies unless you want a stomach full of Mexican venom chocolate. We made that up. But you get it. Homemade and expensive is the way to fucking go here.
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
- 3oz semi-sweet chocolate – we used Ghirardelli
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups sugar
- ½ tsp coarse salt
- ½ tbsp vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup spiced rum
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate together at 20 second intervals, stirring between each. When the concoction is totes smooth and melty, stir in the cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and vanilla.
Add the eggs one at a time and mix until it’s alllll nice and incorporated, then, slowly add in the flour, stirring to combine. Finally, add your rum. Make sure everything is good and mixed.
Scrape that delish batter into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
We recommend topping these with our a Kahlua glaze—just mix together 1 cup of confectioner’s sugar, 2 tbsps Kahlua, 1 tbsp Baileys, and 1 tbsp cocoa powder. Drizzle over the cooled brownies.
