Everyone loves a gooey brownie and add in some red wine and you have an even more amazing dessert! They’re perfect to wrap up #Choctoberfest! These brownies have a crunchy top but are super moist and rich. I had a bottle of leftover wine from dinner the other night and decided to add a little to these brownies … omg! This Italian red wine from my wine club was amazing – it has packed full of berry flavor with hints of clove and cinnamon. It went great with pizza and brought a whole new flavor to brownies.
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup red wine
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8″ square pan; set aside. In a small saucepan, add the butter, chocolate chips, cocoa powder and salt. Melt over medium heat. Allow to cool for five minutes.
In a large bowl, cream the eggs, sugars and vanilla extract. Whisk the melted chocolate and butter into the large bowl. Mix in the flour and baking soda until just combined. Drizzle in the red wine and fold into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 35 to 45 minutes. The top should be set, but the middle will be a bit soft. You can serve immediately with a dollop of vanilla ice cream for a very fudgy dessert, or place in the refrigerator overnight.
