Chocolate Rum Brownies

I love brownies almost as much as I love cake. Of course brownies can always be improved upon and the best way to do that is to add alcohol. Now I’ve tried several different types in this recipe, but my favourite is just normal spiced rum. Although the cherry liqueur runs a close second on awesome.

Now the amount of alcohol may seem like a lot and I suppose it is, but it works wonderfully. Remember to use a spiced rum that you’d actually drink. Use a crappy rum and it won’t taste nearly as good. I also would suggest using Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate. You won’t regret it. That’s the best chocolate on the face of the earth. I continue to do research to find one that is better.


  • 8oz 70% chocolate
  • 1 cup butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 2.5 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup spiced rum
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Some almond slivers


Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.

Melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler over low heat; set aside.
Mix together eggs, sugar, rum and cocoa powder.
Blend in melted chocolate mixture, flour and salt until thoroughly mixed.
Pour into baking pan.
Sprinkle with almonds
Bake for 40 – 45 minutes. (Don’t overbake.)
Let cool for approximately 1 hour before cutting into squares.
