We’re taking brownies to the next level with these Chocolate Bourbon Brownies! They’re super moist and the bourbon adds extra layers of flavor with hints of vanilla, oak and caramel.
The recipe is incredibly easy to follow and if you want, you can watch me make them here in a video!
These are great to serve all year long! Fall or Father’s Day!
I’ve personally always liked eating them plain, with no ice cream or anything. They’re just so satisfying and perfect alone, but in this case, serving them with a small glass of bourbon on the rocks isn’t a bad idea!
Frequently Asked Questions
What Makes a Brownie a Brownie?
From the traditional chocolate brownie to mint brownies to bourbon brownies, there are all different kinds of brownie variations out there. But, what exactly is it that makes a brownie a brownie?
In order to for a brownie to be considered a brownie, it should contain these classic ingredients:
What Makes a Brownie Fudgy?
To make the absolute best brownies from scratch, you first need to learn how to make them fudgy.
For a brownie to be super fudgy, it needs to have a higher fat-to-flour ratio. To achieve, this you need to add more chocolate and butter and go a little lighter on the flour. If you want cakey brownies, you’d do the opposite.
To get that fudgy texture, we suggest doubling the amount of butter (ie, a full stick versus a half stick) and doubling the amount of chocolate (ie, 6 ounces of chocolate versus 3 ounces).
How Long will Brownies Last?
Of course, it would be nice if your brownies from scratch lasted for weeks and weeks so you could enjoy their gooey texture every day.
Unfortunately, this is not the case. If you keep your freshly bakes brownies in an airtight container (to prevent drying out), you can expect them to last 3 to 4 days.
