Bourbon Brownies

These were ok but not quite as flavorful as I would have liked. of course, that may be my fault as I ran out of unsweetened cocoa...

Bourbon Fudge Brownies
1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cups sugar
1 c. Splenda
3 TB light margarine, softened
½ c. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 egg white
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°. Bring bourbon to a boil in a small saucepan; remove from heat. Add chocolate chips, stirring until smooth. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt, stirring with a whisk. Combine sugar and margarine in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well combined. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Add flour mixture and bourbon mixture to sugar mixture, beating at low speed just until combined. Spread batter into a 9-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack.

These sound like they would be good for a holiday treat tray. I just bought a new can of cocoa :) Thanks for posting the recipe.
