Two types of chocolate plus bourbon make these Double Chocolate Bourbon Brownies a smash hit. And topped with bourbon chocolate whipped cream, they're nearly irresistible!

It being Wednesday and all, I felt it apt for a little boozy treat to help us get through the middle of the week. Say hello to Double Chocolate Bourbon Brownies. As if bourbon brownies weren’t enough, I went ahead and frosted these little ones with a bourbon chocolate whipped cream. The end result? A melt-in-your-mouth brownie that’ll leave you crawling back for seconds (and thirds).

I understand that it’s springtime, but Michigan was hit with drizzly 37°F weather yesterday so I’m still craving chocolate. And this brownie hit the spot.

The texture is like a sheet pan style bakery brownie- it cuts and breaks like a cake, but the texture is ridiculously fudgy and moist. And at the same time it’s lighter than most fudgy brownies, making a whipped cream frosting a perfect pairing.

The bourbon hits you at the end. It’s a little kick and some warmth. I’m sure that if served in the fall, cinnamon in the frosting would taste incredible!

So until it’s 80°F out, you can find me in my kitchen with some variation of brownies. And this week, it’s these superstars.

These look so good, Sarah! A little bourbon never hurt anyone, especially with some chocolate! I also love that you did a frosting – these look so incredibly fudgy and decadent! xo

I lost it with two different chocolates but then the bourbon totally took this over the edge. In love.

Thought of you immediately, Traci!

OMG I just made these and they are by far the best brownies I’ve ever had! Like seriously, unreal. And I only cooked mine for 25 mins because I love them slightly under cooked. My own version of living on the edge.

Ha! I love it. You live on that edge, girl! Thanks for commenting and happy baking!

These brownies look so amazing!! I love the addition of the bourbon! Can’t wait to try Sarah!

Hi I really hope you read this because I followed then recipe exactly as written and the frosting turned out to be a thin and gloppy mess. Should the chocolate be folded in perhaps? It would be a great help to clarify your instructions so us less experienced bakers can also have a successful end result. The brownies turned out lovely thought nothing special and I feel like if the frosting was the right consistency they would have been over-the-top good. Instead I’m stuck with an average but tasty plate of brownies with frosting that leaks and drips everywhere.

Hi Hillary! I’m sorry to hear they weren’t as you expected. In the directions, it specifies for melted chocolate in the frosting. So you’ll want to whip the cream until stiff peaks form (this helps to get a solid base for the rest of the frosting), then pour in the melted chocolate and bourbon, then whip it some more until everything comes together. Does this clarify things? I will say, the frosting is so good that I would make it to have just on its own, so I hope it works for you a second time! 🙂

Is the cocoa unsweetened? I’m assuming, but want to make sure! And what kind of chocolate did you use for your frosting? These look amazing, can’t wait to try.

Sarah | Broma Bakery
Reply

Yes, it’s unsweetened! I used bittersweet chocolate chips in the frosting. Enjoy & happy baking, Carly!

Definitely am going to make this recipe! I have one correction to your ingredients. Bourbon and Whiskey are two different products. Bourbon strictly comes from KY. 52% of bourbon is made from corn. Whiskey is any other grain alcohol made in any other state. So to make your brownies, I will be using bourbon!

Reply

My Kentucky Tavern label says Kentucky Tavern Bourbon Whiskey. My understanding is that bourbon is a type of whiskey, and that all bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon (e.g., Scotch, rye). I think Sarah is right.

Made these for my husband’s birthday today. He’s a big bourbon lover. We were both super impressed with these rich, fudgy, Kentucky-huggin’ brownies. Thank you for a wonderful recipe that’ll be used again and again for sure!

Can you double this recipe? Or how much would I need to increase it to fir in a 9×13 pan? How would the cooking time change? Thanks!

Sarah | Broma Bakery
Reply

Hi JD! You would double the recipe for a 9×13 pan. Cooking time should be about the same, but after 30 minutes, insset a knife into the center of the brownies to test for doneness. If it comes out clean or mostly clean (a little moist), they are done. If not, keep checking every additional 5 minutes

Might be good with some crispy, crumbled bacon mixed into batter.
