🗒️ Step by step instructions
Before you Start: Heat oven to 350F and prepare a 8″x8″ inch square pan with parchment paper.
Step 1. Add flour, cocoa powder, white sugar, light brown sugar, vanilla extract and salt and mix in a large bowl. Then melt 1 stick of unsalted butter and 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips in the microwave for 1 minute and then add to the mixing bowl.
Step 2. Then add eggs in one by one into the batter along with the red wine and mix again, making sure to scrape the sides of the bowl.
Step 3. Pour brownie batter into the pan and then bake for 30 minutes until done! You can check by poking it with a knife and as long as it comes out relatively clean it should be good to go! Don’t forget to have one of these brownies with a glass of red wine to amp up the flavor!
👩🍳 Top tips
The perfect red wine brownie pairing is ultimately up to your tastebuds! If you want a stronger flavor I would go with a Cabernet but it you want a lighter flavor you could stick with a Pinot Noir!
- Good Quality Ingredients: Meaning, the better your cocoa powder and chocolate chips the better your brownies will taste! I honestly didn’t think it would make a difference until I splurged a few more dollars on cocoa powder and it truly made all the difference!
- Red Wine: Pick any type of red wine for this brownie but I would spend a little more than just your average cooking wine if you want it to taste even better!
- Slightly Underbake: I prefer my brownies very fudgey so I make sure I take it out a 2 minutes early and the residual heat will continue to bake them even after taking them out of the oven!
These brownies are incredible on their own but I couldn’t resist adding in a few additional dark and white chocolate chips on top! If you’re feeling extra decadent – some crushed nuts added to the batter would be a delicious textural element!
🧺 Storage tips
- Room Temperature: Store at room temperature in an an airtight container for up to 3-4 days.
- Fridge: Cool brownies and then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
- Freezer: Cool brownies completely and then place them in an airtight container or freezer safe bag and put in the freezer for up to 3 months. They will be good for up to 3 months but note the date of when it was baked on the container! Thaw brownies at room temperature or microwave before eating.
