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

These easy and delicious Bourbon brownies are so simple to make and perfect for sharing too. This recipe serves 15 and will take around 1 hour to make and bake. 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.


  • 10x chocolate Bourbon biscuits
  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 130g butter
  • 200g soft brown sugar
  • 130g plain flour
  • 2 eggs




  1. Preheat oven to 170°C, gas mark 3. Grease a 20cm square tin.
  2. Place the Bourbon biscuits into a plastic sandwich bag and crush with a rolling pin. Set to one side.
  3. Break the chocolate and place it in a bowl with the butter. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, ensuring the button of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Allow the chocolate and butter to melt, stirring continuously.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar, then sift the flour and stir through the mix. Add the eggs and mix through.
  5. Gently stir through the crushed biscuits and pour the mix into the tin.
