Welcome to the new age!
There was a time, not so long ago, that enjoying two of your favourite guilty pleasures in one recipe meant two separate sittings. But, those days of inconvenience are long gone.
Behold red wine brownies.
These delicious fudge brownies infused with red wine are basically the boozy BFF we’ve been searching for our whole lives.
If you’re looking to whip these bad boys up from scratch, here’s what you’ll need:
- Melt 6 ounces of bittersweet chocolate and 1/2 cup butter in the microwave.
- In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup granulated sugar and 2 eggs, followed by the melted chocolate-butter mixture, 1/4 cup red wine, and 1 cup flour.
- Next, simply pour the batter into a greased pan and bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.
And voila…tastebud overload in under 45 minutes from start to finish!
For those of us that are “baking handicapped”, there’s an alternate recipe that cuts some corners by using boxed brownie mix instead.
In this case, all you have to do is:
- Mix together one box of brownie mix, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1/4 cup red wine and 1 egg.
- Then, pour your boozy batter into a greased pan and bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.
For extra extravagance, top off your brownie’s with cabernet-soaked strawberries.
