I wanted to bake something fun this weekend and Drunken Brownies rose to the occasion. They were moist, fudgy, chocolate-y, every so lightly gooey and the best of all, boozy! What fun!
I love huge stores where you can find everything. I don’t mean Costco or Walmart. I mean stores like Home depot – Man! Can I find everything I need to build a house there?! I like going there even if I have nothing to buy 😀 And Michaels, they’ve got stuff for any possible art/craft project you want to take up. While I like these stores, my husband does too… Whaaaat?! Yes, he does. The only difference, he likes Total Wines! Name any alcoholic drink and they’ve got it. He wouldn’t mind going there even if there was nothing to buy. It’s another thing that he will anyway walk out of the store, with a cart full of bottles clanging away to glory!
This time around, I decided to stock up on some alcohol that I might need for cooking (Considering how much I had to fight with him when I made this Beer Battered Asparagus). I picked up some travel size alcohol bottles. So, now,
- I have a variety of them at my disposal
- I don’t have to store the rest of the bottle (after using the meagre quantities that most recipes call for)
- I don’t have to wrench it out of my husband’s hands!
This bottle, the chocolate-y batter for the Drunken Brownies and the egg shells helped me capture a good photograph (I think so. Please chime in and let me know).
Before I forget, the recipe is super simple. It is easy to make, with only 5 min of hands-on work and just 1 bowl gets dirty. Line your pan with paper and all you have to do is clean the mixing bowl. Fewer dishes to wash, chocolate and alcohol, life ain’t getting better than this!
PS: If you are a fan of dark chocolate, then you will love these Chocolate lava cakes
