Loved the icing , sweet but delicious! The brownie had good flavor but was pretty dry. I would probably reduce the baking time by about 5 minutes or add something to make it moister . The bourbon flavor didn't come through so I would add extra and maybe add some to the frosting too. I brought them to work and they disappeared so lots of people enjoyed them too!

Goodness if there was ever the best brownies this is the one, I used about a 1/4 cup bourbon that's what I had left in the bottle so I just poured it in, the more the better I say, this was a test-run for Christmas, I think I may sprinkle some crushed candy canes over the icing for the holidays, these brownies are to die for, thanks JostLori for posting the recipe here!
