We love booze. We love brownies. So, this festive recipe is the perfect combination.

It's a super simple recipe and is the perfect treat to meet that chocolate craving. Better still, it's Christmas so you can have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner!


Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 12” x 8” tin with baking parchment.

Step 2

Melt the butter and chocolate together in a bowl over a simmering pan of water. When melted, set to one side to cool a little.

Step 3

Combine eggs and sugar in a bowl. Whisk well until pale, light and creamy.

Step 4

Add the melted butter and chocolate and gently fold in the flour and remaining ingredients until fully combined.

Step 5

Transfer to prepared tin. Level off top with back of the spoon. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until brownie is crusty on top and firm to touch.

Step 6

Allow to cool in tin for a few minutes and transfer to wire rack to fully cool.

Step 7

Cut into squares and dust with icing sugar. Serve with a dollop of freshly whipped cream. Delish!

Why not make a double batch and give them as presents? Everyone loves homemade goodies!
