Gluten Free Bourbon Brownies

Chocolate Bourbon Brownies (Gluten Free)


  • 1-1/4 sticks unsalted butter, plus more for the pan
  • 1/4 c Maker's Mark® Bourbon
  • 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 c confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan, line with parchment paper or foil and butter the parchment.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat the butter and bourbon over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts. Stir in the cocoa powder until smooth. Remove from the heat and immediately add 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips. Stir until smooth. Let cool slightly.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the confectioners' sugar until well-combined. Transfer to the prepared pan and spread in an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips on top.
  4. Bake until the top is glossy and a toothpick inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  5. Lift out of the pan using the parchment paper. Cut into 12 bars.
