Boozy-Vietnamese-Iced-Coffee-via-Bakers-RoyaleToday we celebrate the oh-so-sweet coffee flavored rum-based liquor from Mexico – Kahlúa. Kahlúa is one of the few alcohols that can be its own dessert straight up or mixed with any ingredient of the cream, chocolate, or coffee variety. What better way to celebrate the day that acknowledges dessert alcohol than with three recipes for a Kahlúa filled evening? Here is your guide to eat, drink, and enjoy Kahlúa on its special day.

Triple Chocolate Kahlúa Brownies: (serves 12)

  • 4oz (115gr) semi-sweet chocolate
  • 6 tablespoons (90gr) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup (150gr) sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons Kahlua
  • ½ cup (60gr) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon natural high fat cocoa powder
  • 3oz (85gr) white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 8x8in baking pan with parchment paper. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter over simmering water (not boiling!) stirring occasionally until smooth. Cool for 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar, eggs and Kahlua stirring well after each addition. Sift the flour and cocoa over the chocolate mixture and stir until just combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. In double boiler, melt the white chocolate chips over simmering water (not boiling!) until smooth. Spoon the white chocolate mixture on the chocolate mixture. Using a wooden skewer, or toothpick, swirl the white chocolate into the batter. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let the brownies cool completely before removing from the pan. Remove pan and cut into 12-16 square.
