My husband and I love these brownies! I have taken them to his work and the employees loved them there. I have made them at least 5 times and he requested I made them again for his birthday Friday to take bring to his work again. Which is why I am searching for this recipe again right now! They are very thick and he likes to add a little more bourbon than the recipe calls for as it is just a very mild flavor.
