So this weekend is National Bourbon Day, and I figured we should celebrate. I guess you could call me a whiskey girl? I thought the best way to celebrate would be with combining chocolate and bourbon to make a deliciously sweet combination in these bourbon chocolate brownies. Even better, let’s throw some caramel in there. Bourbon and caramel go together surprisingly well…are you hungry yet?!

Even if you’re not really a bourbon-lover, you’ll love these brownies. They don’t actually taste like bourbon, but the taste compliments the chocolate and caramel really well, creating a flavor you wouldn’t expect. Gotta try them to find out!

Bourbon chocolate brownies ingredients (makes one 8×8 pan):

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 4 oz. dark baking chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Melt the butter in a saucepan on the stove. Mix in the chopped chocolate and stir until fully melted. Set aside to cool before pouring into  a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt and sifted cocoa powder. Take the cooled butter and chocolate mixture, and mix in the sugar and then the eggs, beating well between each addition. Add whiskey. Lastly, fold in the remaining dry ingredients and stir until only a small amount of white is showing. Pour the batter into a parchment lined 8×8 square pan and bake on 350 degrees for about 30-34 minutes until the brownies begin to pull away from the sides and an inserted toothpick comes out almost clean.

Let your bourbon brownies cool while you start making the frosting.

Bourbon caramel frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used low fat)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbs bourbon whiskey

First, melt the butter in a small saucepan on medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar and heat for about 2 minutes. Pour in the milk and bring to boil, stirring often. Let cool and pour into a mixing bowl. Mix in the powdered sugar until fully combined. Then add the vanilla and bourbon and mix until creamy. Spread the frosting onto cooled brownies and serve with a glass of milk (or, you know, bourbon?) and enjoy!
