Jack Daniel's Brownies with Jack Daniel's frosting

These are not your everyday brownies.  They are incredible even without the whiskey.  You might just want to add the Jack Daniel's.

First of all you are going to need a small square pan.  I think they are about 8 or 9 inches square.  I bought the one below from Dollar Tree for a pack of 2.  I've  tried to double the recipe and it doesn't come out quite as well.  If you decide to make more than 1 batch, I also recommend not reusing the pan without rinsing out all the chocolate.

Brownie Ingredients
        3/4 cup flour
        1/2 teaspoon baking soda
        1/2 teaspoon salt
        1/2 cup sugar ( or more if desired, for a sweeter taste)
        1/3 cup Crisco shortening
        2 tablespoons water
        1 (6 ounce) packages chocolate chips
        1 teaspoon vanilla
        2 eggs
        1/2 cup chopped walnuts
        1/3-1/2 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey ( or more or less to suit taste)

Frosting Ingredients
        1 1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
        1/4 cup unsalted butter
        2 cups powdered sugar
        3 tablespoons half-and-half
        1 tablespoon Jack Daniels Whiskey
        1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

When I make these, I use 1/2 cup.  You could easily substitute Jack Daniel's for another liquor, be it a bourbon, whiskey or Bailey's.  They would all work perfectly.

Step 1: Spray your baking pan

Simple enough.  No need for to much of an explanation here except that if you skip this step, you waste brownie.

To get prepped for how quick this is to make, get a separate bowl and place the flour, salt & baking soda.

It is much cheaper to buy whole walnuts and break them up yourself.  Prepare this ahead of time as well and place into another bowl.

What butter? The recipe does not list butter as an ingredient for the brownies but in step two it says. "Once the butter is melted...". I added 2 tablespoons and it worked great. How much do you use?
