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.

    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!

    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.

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