Double Chocolate Bourbon Brownies

These brownies are rich, decadent and a total crowd pleaser. They take just over an hour to prepare but will be worth every minute of your time.

These double chocolate bourbon brownies are the perfect treat for a fall night. They have a rich, decadent flavor and are just as good as they sound. They’re also better than they sound because they’re made with dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate.

Given that it was Wednesday, I thought a small alcoholic treat would be appropriate to help us get through the middle of the week. Welcome to the world of Double Chocolate Bourbon Brownies. I went ahead and coated these small ones with a whiskey chocolate whipped cream, as if bourbon brownies weren’t enough. What’s the ultimate result? A decadent, melt-in-your-mouth brownie that will have you begging for more (and thirds).

I know it’s spring, but Michigan got slammed with a gloomy 37°F day yesterday, and I’m still wanting chocolate. And this brownie was just right. The texture is similar to that of a sheet pan bakery brownie, in that it slices and breaks like a cake but is excessively fudgy and moist. It’s also lighter than most fudgy brownies, which makes a whipped cream icing a fantastic match.

At the very finish, the bourbon strikes you. It’s got a little kick to it, as well as some warmth. If served in the autumn, I’m sure the cinnamon icing would be delicious! So until it’s 80°F outside, you’ll find me in my kitchen making brownies of some kind. And it’s these superstars this week.


How to create bourbon brownies with double chocolate

These bourbon brownies are simple to prepare (and much simpler to devour!). The following are the fundamental stages for producing these bad boys:

Heat the chocolate and butter — In a large microwave-safe dish, melt the chocolate and butter in 30-second intervals until completely melted. To assist the mixture along, you’ll probably need to stir it between cooking intervals.

Add the wet ingredients — To cool down the melted chocolate mixture, add the sugar first, then the eggs, bourbon, and salt.

Fold in the dry ingredients — Fold in the cocoa powder and flour with a spatula, being careful not to overmix the brownie batter.

Bake and chill the brownies – Bake the brownies until just set, then remove them from the oven and put them aside to cool fully before icing. You don’t want to overcook these bourbon brownies because they’ll lose their fudgy, cakey texture.

After the brownies have cooled, make the bourbon chocolate frosting and pour it all over them. Serve with a big glass of milk or a shot of whiskey, if desired.


How do you keep bourbon brownies fresh?

Because these chocolate bourbon brownies feature whipped cream icing, I’d keep them in a single layer in the fridge. Before serving, let the brownies to come to room temperature (assuming you can wait that long). In the fridge, these bourbon brownies should keep 5 to 7 days.



To make brownies

  • 1 pound of butter
  • Chop 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 pound of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tblsp whiskey (bourbon)
  • a half teaspoon of salt
  • flour (1/2 cup)
  • a quarter cup of cocoa

To make the icing

  • a half-cup of thick cream
  • 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips
  • 3 tblsp whiskey (bourbon)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Set aside an 8×8 baking dish lined with parchment paper.
  2. Combine butter and bittersweet chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until completely melted.
  3. To chill the liquid, stir in the sugar, then add the eggs, whiskey, and salt. Mix until the mixture is smooth and glossy, then fold in the flour and cocoa. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle of the brownies comes out clean. Allow for thorough cooling before icing.
  4. Whip the cream until firm peaks form for the icing. Whip in the chocolate and bourbon until everything is fully blended. After that, frost the brownies and serve!
