Can I substitute fireball whiskey for the vanilla extract ?
I bet that would be good! Extra cinnamon and a compliment to the brown sugar. I wonder if it makes much of a difference?
My family says these are better than chocolate brownies! They’re absolutely delicious, and I love the chewiness. Thank you!

Hi Janet,

Thank you so much for this comment, we are always so happy when people enjoy our recipes! We love chewy brownies too, the chewier the better.
Delightful. Sprinkled butterscotch chips on 1/3, chocolate chips on 1/3, and plain. All wonderful. So easy with everything at home. This is a keeper. Oh, and the kitchen smells like cinnamon and vanilla.

Hi Marianne,

It depends on how thick you want the brownies, but a classic 9" x 13" oblong baking pan will work.
Just wondering...what size pan did you use for this recipe?
OneHowTo Editor
It's a pretty average size, we can't say for sure but we'd say it's around 35 cm long x 15 cm wide.
Hope this helps
