Anna simply the most delicious, decadent brownies I have ever tried. I used all the ingredients except for the nuts and had to sub kahlua and baileys irish cream for the whisky, as I was out. The liquers worked really well with the chocolate and coffee. Resulting in a moist, tender, chewy cake treat. They melted in your mouth, leaving the most pleasant after taste. I won't tell you how many I ate. I even broke down and frosted the babies, so good. Thank you so much my dear for sharing your incredible recipe....Kudos :)
Very tasty! And I have a very picky 18 year old, so I halved the coffee in the batter and only put glaze on half the brownies. He loved the unglazed one. I found these brownies were more cake-like than chewy, but they're still good!
