BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - In the 1800s, the owners of Bittersweet Plantation in Donaldsonville created a great recipe for rich and delicious brownies flavored with ratifia and often with bourbon whiskey. After sampling, there is no doubt the batch made with our Jones Creek Bourbon is our favorite!

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Yields: 20 small brownies

¼ cup Jones Creek Distillery Bourbon

¼ cup bittersweet chocolate chips

1½ cups flour

½ cup unsweetened cocoa
