but I now realize that is how good brownies, tres leches y un poco (a little) de tres leches liquer go together ...just like cookies and milk. .
And with cinco de mayo...literally right around the corner...my brain child couldn't have had any better timing!
If you are lucky enough to have your local liquor store sell this tres leches liquer in little shooters...Perfecto!..
If not these brownies are well worth the extra dinero required to go all in and buy the big bottle...
Because seriously...how can anyone be disappointed by anything, especially liquor. that is inspired by the oh so delicioso
Latin American cake!
Vamos a la cocina!
1/2 cup Tres Leches Liquer for brownie batter 1/4 cup to pour over brownies
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
2 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 inch metal baking pan with foil, leaving a 2" overhang.
2. Stir 12 oz. chocolate and 1 cup butter in a medium metal or glass bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water until melted and smooth.
3. Whisk sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in chocolate mixture, then 1/2 cup of the tres leches liquer . Fold in flour and 1 1/4 tsp. kosher salt.
Pour batter into prepared pan.
4. Bake brownies until surface begins to crack and a toothpick inserted into center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 35–40 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack and let cool for at least 20 minutes.
5. Loosen and lift brownies from pan using the foil overhang; cut into squares. Using a toothpick poke 4-5 tiny holes on top of brownies. Take your tres leches liquer (you can warm liquer in a saucepan for a minute or two if desired) over brownies.
