Our Bourbon brownies recipe is a tasty twist on our biscuit cupboard favourites.

The gooey, classic brownie recipe originates from America. They are given an extra crunch with the traditional English biscuit baked inside. Simple enough to bake with the kids.

  • 130g butter
  • 200g soft brown sugar

  2. Place the Bourbon biscuits into a plastic sandwich bag and crush with a rolling pin. Set to one side.
