Bourbon-biscuit brownies


Well it’s here at last the brand new season of Game Of Thrones!!  Season 7  – Episode 1  debuts tonight .  Yes it’s definitely going to be a late one BUT so worth it.

My daughter Amy & I have been binge watching S1-6 over the past month in preparation for tonight’s premier which is on at 2AM our time. We’re #teamdani all the way.

A very delicious mid-night feast is on the cards so I’ll be baking the chocolate goodies and our Amy is making her special Game of Throne’s  cocktail.  On the menu tonight is Home-made Pizza, Chocolate Popcorn Cupcakes ( you can find that Recipe HERE) and Chocolate Popcorn Brownies, which brings me back to my post.

I made these really delicious Bourbon-Biscuit Brownies a few weeks ago. They were an experiment that work out really well. I had no chocolate chips to put in my usual brownies   but what I did have was a packet of chocolate bourbon-biscuits which I crumbled up and chucked into the batter

Bourbon Biscuits are hugely popular in this part of the world, they’re a typically British biscuit right up there with the beloved custard cream.  In our house the Bourbon-Biscuit is the king and you will always find a packet in the biscuit tin.

This is a very simple  brownie recipe, no mixer required just a wooden spoon!

I crumble up 1/2 the biscuits and stir them into the brownie batter.  The other half –  I leave whole and press into the top of the batter before it goes into the oven.  The biscuits make the chocolate brownie even more chocolaty and also lend a little biscuit crunch to the rich squidgy brownie.  It’s a win-win situation.

  • Joan Tanguay July 17, 2017 at 6:57 pm

    I found a box of chocolate Bourbon biscuits for $9.89 on Amazon. A bit expensive, but I think I’ll order them to try these brownies. Hope they’re delicious!

    • Karyn July 19, 2017 at 10:03 am

      I agree Brownies Rule..its very hard to resist one😉

  • Pam July 17, 2017 at 11:27 pm

    Brownies are my favorite dessert. Adding those Bourbon biscuits sounds like a really tasty touch!

    • Karyn July 19, 2017 at 10:02 am

      They do make a fab dessert especially warm and with some custard😉

  • Adriana Lopez Martn July 18, 2017 at 6:48 am

    This is so creative and looks so amazingly yummy and moist. I do not follow game of thrones but you caught me at bourbon =)

    • Karyn July 19, 2017 at 10:02 am

      Lol😀 everybody loves a tasty brownie and this is a very easy one Adriana

  • Marisa Franca @ All Our Way July 18, 2017 at 12:26 pm

    I think Hubby and I are the only 2 people on this planet who have absolutely no clue what Game of Thrones is about! That being said, we are familiar with great looking brownies and you have that recipe. Will have to give it a try.

    • Karyn July 19, 2017 at 10:00 am

      Your not the only ones..My two Teenage Sons can’t see whst the fuss is about..butvthey do love the brownies😉

  • Veena Azmanov July 18, 2017 at 2:30 pm

    These look so much fun. My kids love Bourbon Biscuits – I do too. I must try this. Thanks

  • Anvita July 18, 2017 at 7:05 pm

    As a kid grew up eating Bourbon Biscuits. Never thought one can make brownies with it. Nice idea.

    • Karyn July 19, 2017 at 9:59 am

      I love recipes that bring back memries of childhood Anvita

  • valmg @ From Val's Kitchen July 19, 2017 at 1:11 am

    Look at that chocolate! I’ve never heard of a bourbon biscuit but it sure looks good with that brownie.

    • Karyn July 19, 2017 at 9:54 am

      Hi Val..yes I think there an Irish and Uk could try an Oreo that has a a chocolate cream that might work😀

  • Molly Kumar July 19, 2017 at 4:26 am

    Oh, I totally get the excitement for the new game of thrones season and we actually made a dessert to watch the premiere with my girlfriends 🙂 These brownies look so good and I do have these bourbon biscuits, so will try soon.

    • Karyn July 19, 2017 at 9:52 am

      Hi Molly😍 what did you think? I thought it was brilliant..they spent a little time on most of the main characters..gonna beca good glad you like the brownie recipe

  • Emma @ Supper in the Suburbs July 29, 2017 at 11:03 am

    Bourbons are my absolute favourite!!! Great idea putting them in a brownie!

    • Karyn July 29, 2017 at 9:18 pm

      Cheers Emma ;). There’s always an argument in my house borbouns or custard creams..I love both

  • Karyl | Karyl's Kulinary Krusade July 29, 2017 at 12:05 pm

    My close group of friends are SO into Game of Thrones! I haven’t really joined the fray, but I’ve seen bits and pieces with them. These brownies look so good, as do your Bourbon biscuits. I’ve never heard of them before!

    • Karyn July 29, 2017 at 9:17 pm

      Hi Karyl 😉 My son is the same.. He can’t understand what all the hype is about. I think the nearest you would have would be a chocolate Oreo. Any biscuit in a brownie is yum!!

      • Karyl | Karyl's Kulinary Krusade August 15, 2017 at 7:20 pm

        I was in Canada a couple weeks ago and saw these Bourbon biscuits in the store! I thought about buying them, but then realized I would eat the whole thing by myself, so I exercised a little self control 🙂

        • Karyn August 15, 2017 at 9:23 pm

          Fair play Karyl..I have none when it comes to biscuits especially chocolate ones😂

  • Gloria @ Homemade & Yummy July 29, 2017 at 9:38 pm

    OMG I remember eating those delicious bourbon cookies. I wonder if I can still find them here. Hubby is a HUGE Game of Thrones fan….and a chocolate fanatic (loves bourbon too). Guess this is WIN WIN WIN for him…maybe I should be the “Good Wife” and make him some.

    • Karyn July 29, 2017 at 10:58 pm

      Hi Gloria.. I think there Bourbon Biscuits very hard to find unless maybe if you had a store near you that sold English or Irish products you might find them.. have to send my brother some in Boston every Christmas lol

  • Kylee from Kylee Cooks July 30, 2017 at 4:25 am

    I LOVE Bourbon biscuits! My initial thought was that you had included booze in the brownies, but this is almost is good!!

    • Karyn July 30, 2017 at 9:48 pm

      No Its just a biscuit or cookie Kylee but I wouldn’t say no to a REAL Bourbon Brownie LOL

  • Christine - Jar Of Lemons July 30, 2017 at 4:14 pm

    These sound DELICIOUS! We always love brownies. This variation sounds especially amazing!

    • Karyn July 30, 2017 at 9:49 pm

      Everyone loves Brownies especially in my house in any shape or form x

  • Veena Azmanov July 30, 2017 at 6:53 pm

    This is such a cool idea. I love bourbon Biscuits.!! That brownie and scoop of ice cream would be heaven right now..

    • Karyn July 30, 2017 at 9:47 pm

      Your absolutely right Veena. Brownies and Ice-cream are the best combo

  • Whitney @WhittyPaleo July 30, 2017 at 10:34 pm

    Oh this is creative and handy! Love the way you’ve used the biscuits! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Karyn July 31, 2017 at 11:04 am

      No Problem 😉 so glad you liked the recipe

  • Adriana Lopez Martn July 31, 2017 at 5:39 am

    Love the idea of using the bourbon cookies adds flavor an additional texture to the bite. Now I am craving chocolate brownies.

  • Molly Kumar July 31, 2017 at 8:35 am

    Now, here’s a recipe that combines two of my favorite – brownies + bourbon biscuits !!! I always have bourbon biscuits stocked at home and will have to try this deliciousness soon 🙂
