Barefoot Merlot Glazed Brownies

Barefoot Merlot Glazed Brownies


What do you do when you have a half a bottle of Merlot leftover? You use it to make brownies, of course! These dark chocolate Barefoot Merlot brownies will surely satisfy any sweet tooth. The combination of dark and semi-sweet chocolate mixed with a luscious cocoa powder will have you and your friends coming back for seconds!

Start by melting the chocolate and butter together in a small saucepot. Once that has melted, add the Barefoot Merlot and whisk until the mixture is smooth.

Add the whisked eggs and continue to stir until the eggs become fully incorporated into the chocolate mixture.

Once the eggs have been added, the mixture should look glossy and smooth.

Add the sugar and vanilla and stir to combine. Follow with the flour, cocoa powder and salt.

Transfer the batter into a foil lined baking pan and then place the pan into the oven to bake.

While the brownies are baking, whisk together the semi sweet chocolate, butter and Barefoot Merlot to make the glaze.

Add the glaze on top of the brownies once they have cooled and enjoy. These brownies are perfect alongside a glass of Barefoot Merlot. The dark chocolate intensifies the flavor of our wine perfectly.
