Whiskey Brownies

whiskey browniesThis boozy brownie recipe mixes a creamy chocolatey topping with the bite of whiskey for a dessert that I just can’t stop eating!

You can, of course, make it without the whiskey — but why would you want to?

Whiskey Brownies

Ingredients

¾ cup flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening
2 tbs. water
2 eggs
1 (6 oz) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup whiskey

Chocolate topping

½ cup heavy cream
1 package (6 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a 9-inch pan. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside. In a saucepan, combine sugar, shortening and water. Cook on low heat until boiling gently. Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla. Then beat in the eggs, one at a time. Now add flour mixture and stir well. (If you want to include a half cup of nuts, mix them in at this stage.) Pour the mix into the pan and bake for 30 minutes.

After brownies have cooled, sprinkle the whiskey on top and let it soak in. The make the topping as follows:

Heat the cream in the microwave for 45 seconds and pour on top of chocolate chips and stir. If that does not melt the chocolate enough, put it the mixture in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until smooth. Then spread on top of brownies.
