  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels (6 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup bourbon

White Icing

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 tablespoon shortening


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk together. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, shortening, and water. Over medium heat, bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add chocolate morsels and vanilla and stir until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Add dry ingredients and walnuts and stir until thoroughly mixed.
  • Spoon batter into a greased 9-inch square pan. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Evenly drizzle bourbon over brownies. Cool brownies completely.
  • For white icing, combine butter and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add in powdered sugar and beat until smooth.
  • Spread brownies with White Icing.
  • For Chocolate Glaze, combine morsels and shortening in a heavy bottomed small saucepan (or a double boiler). Heat over very low heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is melted.
  • Pour warm Chocolate Glaze over top of white icing. Let set and cut into squares.
