I used a "supreme" brownie mix with chocolate chunks already in it, used dark rum, and replaced the 1 C of almonds with 1/4 C chopped peanuts. These were easy to make and taste fairly good, but the alcohol flavor is fairly strong. The top also looks too bubbly although the texture inside seems okay (not sure why that happened). If I make these again, I would definitely use less rum or possibly light rum or both.



This morning I tried this recipe for the first time. Not having any run, I substituted what I had (blackberry brandy) AND it is better than a 5 star!



I followed the suggestions of a few others and used Blackberry Brandy. The flavor was good, but the brownies stuck to the bottom of the pan. I made 2 batches: one with M&Ms and one with chocolate chips. The flavor was awesome, but they looked horrible.
