Red Wine Brownies Now Exist
There are some things in life that are just made for each other. You know... peanut butter and jelly, Netflix and chill and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
However, none of these perfect pairs can hold a candle to the almighty combination that is wine and chocolate.
Any woman will tell you this delectable duo is a glorious gift from the food gods that makes all your delicious, boozy dreams come true.
Remember when we showed you that insanely tasty red wine hot chocolate a while ago?
Well, if that boozy beverage made you want to throw on a pair of sweatpants and barricade yourself in your apartment for the rest of winter, you might want to cancel your weekend plans.
We just found another way to turn your two all-time favorite things into one epic treat.
Behold: red wine brownies.
That's right. Fudgey brownies infused with red wine are now real. This treat is basically the boozy BFF we've been searching for our whole lives.
Because let's be real: Who needs pot brownies when you can get lit AF with some port brownies?
Apparently, there are a few different ways you can turn up with these tipsy treats.
If you're feeling ambitious, you can embrace your inner Martha Stewart and whip up a batch of these bad boys from scratch.
To make the homemade rendition, you'll need to melt 6 ounces of bittersweet chocolate and 1/2 cup butter in the microwave. In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup granulated sugar and 2 eggs, followed by the melted chocolate-butter mixture, 1/4 cup red wine and 1 cup flour. Next, simply pour the batter into a greased pan and bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Then, you're all done.
If baking isn't your strongest suit (or you just happen to be lazy AF), you can cut some corners by using boxed brownie mix instead.
In this case, all you have to do is mix together one box of brownie mix, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1/4 cup red wine and 1 egg. Then, pour your boozy batter in a greased pan and bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.
If you're looking to make these things even bougier, we've also seen people jazz up their wine brownies with everything from chocolate chips and walnuts to fancy, cabernet-soaked cranberries.
Seriously, the wine brownie possibilities are pretty much endless.
Unfortunately, some of the alcohol does cook out of these brownies. So, if you're looking to get wine wasted, you might want to polish off the rest of the bottle while you stuff your face with this drunken dessert.
Trust me, you won't be disappointed. Cheers.
