Chocolate solves a lot of problems. Brownies solve even more. Have you ever seen a sad person eating a decliciously warm, gooey brownie? Probably not. As a bartender, I have, unfortunately, seen plenty of sad people drinking bourbon.
Liquor, like chocolate, helps make even the worst of days feel better. Heck, it makes the good days that much better too. Basically, theres nothing that some whiskey and dessert can’t fix. So when you combine the two, something amazing is sure to happen.
Like, for example, Bourbon Brownies.
My mouth is already watering. These are so easy to whip up so you know you’ll be half a pan deep and probably buzzing in no time. This recipe from Oh Bite It calls them “naughty brownies” and I’m pretty sure I can see why. A treat this indulgent has to be at least a little sinful. Don’t worry, I won’t tell Santa.
1 Box of your fave Brownie Mix
25 Kraft Caramels..unwrapped
2 tbsp. Bourbon..(Naughty) OR Milk..(Nice)
Unwrap the Caramels
In a medium bowl microwave the Caramels and the (naughty OR nice) liquid of your choice on high for 1 minutes..STIR IT! then another minute on high..stir to blend. Set aside..
Mix the Brownie Batter and Pour 1/2 of it into a baking dish ( I used a small, deep dish because I like thicker Brownies)
Pour the Caramel Sauce over the Brownie Batter…you could always just drink the Caramel Sauce and call it a day, it’s THAT good!
Now Pour the remaining Brownie Batter over the Caramel Sauce. Gently spread it over the Caramel..some may peek through and that’s fine!
Bake it at 350 for about 25-30 minutes, or until it’s firm and baked through.
