These Cocoa, Cranberry & Whiskey Brownies are pure indulgence! The three ingredients put together hit the right taste buds and I think, come together, to make an awesome brownie!
I am that brownie snob who for a very long time cringed enough on the name of Cocoa brownies. More than once I have been caught saying that if brownies don’t have good quality chocolate, what is the point of them? But these cocoa, cranberry & whiskey brownies sure make me a happy person!
And then a while ago, a friend got some kick-ass quality cocoa powder from South Africa and I tried the recipe Smitten Kitchen has very hesitantly. But I think the fact that cocoa good quality made all the difference and I ended up making those brownies with many variations. And then the cocoa got over and I was back to wondering what should I do now. The cocoa from Mason & Co is what came to rescue at that time (this is not a sponsored post 😉 ) I love the texture and flavour of the cocoa and after a few permutations and combinations, I made these cocoa, cranberry and whiskey brownies which are such a hit at home.
For all practical reasons, you can add anything instead of cranberries, skip the whiskey and they are still awesome brownies, but somehow this combination hits all the right notes. It is perfect for evening tea party or an after party dessert with ice cream or well, just because you want to eat them. Brownies taste good as they are, but combine them with some ice-cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce and some choco chips toppings, and you can take the entire dessert to the next level!
And if you get some awesome cocoa powder, there are a few more recipes you can definitely try out!
