quick bite: bourbon butterscotch brownie sundae

posted in: baking, quick bite | 7

This pity party weekend, I got bored of drinking my booze, so I’m eating it instead! [And I don’t even care if this is a rather shoddy picture.]

 Actually, I was just inspired by Josielynne‘s #BHF11PP bourbon ice cream. Because I’m too pitiful to own an ice cream maker, I decided to make a sundae. Fortunately, my roommate baked brownies on Friday but conveniently forgot to take them to her event. So I warmed up a brownie and some rather old butterscotch sauce found in the back of my fridge. added store bought vanilla ice cream, splashed some bourbon on top and a sprinkle of smoked sea salt.

Both the brownie and butterscotch are Smitten Kitchen recipes. Because she rules. The brownie recipe is my lazy go-to, when I don’t feel like melting chocolate. And this sundae is a surefire way to cure your alcoholic sweet tooth.

While I have no shame over my pitiful weekend, hopefully I will have some recipes for you lovely readers. These “Quick Bites” are great and all, but I miss fully embellished posts.
