Sara's Port Brownies

My best friend Sara is a self-proclaimed NON-cook. However, like me, she is a lush when it comes to chocolate, ice cream, and alcohol. Sara came up with the idea to replace the water in a brownie mix with alcohol!! Genius.

Sara recommends the Ghirardelli Double Chocolate brownie mix. ("It's the best one!") My only caveat with this particular brand is to take it out of the oven early if you use the 11x17 pan (it calls for the same cooking time for 8x8, 9x9, and 11x17 pans, which is odd to me)... otherwise you'll have a lot of cleanup afterward. :-/ However, it was a fabulous, chunky brownie mix!

Mix brownie ingredients per the back of the box, but be sure to omit the water that it calls for. Instead of the water, mix in an equal part of port wine, or as Sara says, 1.5 times the port wine so that they're super moist. Bake per the instructions on the box.

*After the port brownies were a big hit, Sara then tried it with butterscotch schnapps... "You can taste the alcohol SO much more." Oh, sweet Sara... :)

I may look like a normal brownie, but I'm even better!
