Black Russian Brownies!

These brownies are as yummy as they are quirky. The pepper and vodka add a welcome kick to the old chocolate and walnut brownies. They are also very easy to make. I haven’t made brownies for awhile and these were definitely the best way to start again. For this post I wanna try something different. Explaining the recipe in pictures and single sentences.

Start by pre-heating the oven.
Melt the chocolate, butter and pepper and cool.
Beat the eggs and sugar.
Mix together the coffee/ kahlua, vanilla and vodka, add into the chocolate mix and mix it into the eggs.
Mix together the walnuts, flour and baking powder and add into the chocolate mixture.


Bake for 20-25 minutes at 180 C.

Have a great day! 🙂
