I was saddled with the task of sending a treat along with my husband (who was headed to a Laker’s game viewing party). Since I was creating a brownie for a bunch of manly, sports-obsessed men, I wanted to try something that had a bit of alcohol in it.
These have Kahlua (can sub any coffee-flavored liqueur) in the brownie itself. I also brushed a couple of Tablespoons of Kahlua on the brownies as they came out of the oven… and watched it soak into the top and down through the warm layers. The browned butter icing also has a bit of Kahlua in it.
Although the flavor of Kahlua is prominent in these brownies, they were apparently kid-friendly… my little one loved them as much as we did. Am I a horrible mother for allowing my child to eat Kahlua brownies? Maybe that’s why he was so sleepy that night… (kidding, of course!) Next thing you know, he’ll be asking for Kahlua in his hot chocolate 😉
*These are a FUDGY sort of brownie (the best kind)… not a cakey brownie to be found in this bunch.
*They’re an EASY homemade brownie to make… just mix and bake, and ice when cool.
*They’re addicting… consider yourself warned!
