Red Wine Brownies

Who watched Beyonce ROCK it last night at the Super Bowl! Omg. She killed it. Best halftime show ever. And Destiny’s Child reunion? I felt like I was reliving my high school days all over again. It was magical.

So now that the Super Bowl is over – it’s time to get ready for the next food related holiday. Valentines Day. And that means one thing. Chocolate. Wine. Chocolate. Sugar.

  • 2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Barefoot Merlot

  1. Hi Gaby! I just tried these out and they were awesome! One problem though, the flour was really hard to stir in completely and I ended up with some small clumps in the brownies. Any suggestions for how to fix this? Thanks!

  2. Can you believe that people were saying they didn’t like the half time show!?! Whaaaaat? Ravens who? In my opinion, Beyonce WON the Super Bowl! She was amazing, and always is! Oh and btw, these brownies look pretty amazing as well ; )

    1. whaaaaaaat? people didn’t like the halftime show? who are they? clearly we can’t be friends with them. I agree with you… Beyonce totally won the Super Bowl!

  3. These brownies look like something I would love. I just have one problem. What is leftover wine? Seems like an alien concept to me!

  4. Question: is the alcohols cooked out of the brownies? I want to make them for work, but don’t think I should take alcohol in!
