Kahlua and pistachios brownie

Chocolate + pistachios + coffee + liqueur = Pure bliss....This is what these brownies are....

I am a impulsive shopper and have to buy things NOW...During one of those impulsive shopping spree in a liqueur store, I got this bottle of Kahlua and explained my husband that I am stuck with a lot of recipes because I don't have this liqueur....I told him I could have made so many recipes only if I had this...And such a darling he is, surprised me with another bottle....And let me tell you , it's been ONLY 6 months, since I bought this...So today guilt hit me and the bottle was dusted and opened....And what resulted was these dense, moist, chewy brownies with a crunch from the roasted Pistachios...Do give this recipe a try...It's delicious...

All you need is ( adapted from )

  • Pistachios-1\4 cup
  • Unsweetened dark chocolate-50 gms
  • Unsalted butter-75 gms
  • Sugar-3\4 cup
  • Eggs-2
  • Vanilla extract-1\2 tsp
  • Kahlua-1\4 cup (  you can substitute it with strong black coffee )
  • All purpose flour-1\2 cup and 2 tbsp
  • Baking powder-1\2 tsp
  • Salt-1\2 tsp

Method of preparation

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees
Grease and line a 8 x 8 inch pan
Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl
When the oven is hot toast the pistachios for 15 minutes and chop into small pieces
Melt chocolate and butter in a pan
Remove from heat
Whisk sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and Kahlua in the pan
Add flour and pistachios and mix
Pour the batter in the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes
Remove from the oven and cut into squares
Sprinkle with some cocoa powder

The brownies are usually best straight out of the oven but these are as great ,a day old....Store in a air tight container and enjoy ....
