Bourbon fudge brownies are not for the faint of heart. These thick, rich, fudgy brownies are baked with bourbon inside and out. Bourbon in the batter and the glaze!
For those of you wondering, I did not accept the part-time job offer for which I painstakingly debated in my post on Friday. While the experience would have been beneficial I could not see myself retaining sanity, driving to the other side of the state every week for 10 weeks for 6 hours of work. On the bright side, I was told to keep in touch for any future job posting in which I may be interested. Sounds like a good deal to me!
Decision making is hard, but instead of winding down the stress levels with a stout beverage just go ahead and spike some brownies. These bourbon fudge brownies live up to their name because they are so fudgy you may actually think you are eating fudge. Rich, dense, liquored up fudge brownies and topped with a bourbon glaze. And then ice cream and fudge sauce. And a shot of bourbon on the side.

BOURBON FUDGE BROWNIES
Makes 16 large brownies
1-1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

3/4 cup cake flour

- Spread evenly in the prepared baking pan and bake for 1 hour.
- While the brownies bake, prepare the glaze. In a medium bowl whisk together all ingredients. Set aside.
