After a couple of trips to the Caribbean, we have an excess of rum in our home. Several of the hotels we stayed at gave us a free bottle of rum when we checked in. So, now we have several bottles of rum rattling around in our Booze Basement (not quite a wine cellar).
Dorie Greenspan’s French Chocolate Brownie recipe gave me an excuse to use some of that rum and to play with matches! These brownies contain rum raisins. I reconstituted some golden raisins in water and then added some dark rum which I lit on fire to burn off the alcohol.
The brownies were fudgy and the raisins added a nice texture difference. Overall, the brownies were good but they weren’t my favorite brownies ever.
