Missouri Fruit Wine Brownies Recipe

Time: Prep – 15 minutes  |  Bake time – 40 minutes

Yields: 12-16 servings



½ cup     Missouri fruit wine (We used raspberry.)

4 ounces     Milk chocolate, chips or a bar- chopped/broken up

3 tbsp     Unsalted butter, cut into pieces

2     Eggs, room temperatureMO Wine Brownies Ingredients

¾ cup     White sugar

1 tsp     Vanilla

¾ cup     All purpose flour

¼ cup     Unsweetened cocoa powder

½ tsp     Salt

½ cup     Fruit for garnish (optional


4-5 tbsp         Powdered sugar

1-2 tbsp         Missouri fruit wine (We used raspberry.)


Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9x9 or 8x8 baking pan.

In a small pot over low heat, melt the butter and chocolate together until smooth. (You can also melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave, heat for approximately 1 ½- 2 minutes in increments of 30 seconds. Stirring between each until all the chocolate is melted and the butter and chocolate are combined and smooth.)

Remove from heat, transfer to a large bowl, and add wine to melted chocolate mixture, whisking until fully incorporated.

Add eggs one at a time, whisking to combine after each addition.

Mix in vanilla and sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa and salt.

Add dry ingredients to wet and stir until smooth.

Pour the batter into prepared baking pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the brownies begin to just pull away from the sides of the pan.

While the brownies are baking, make the glaze. In a small bowl, whisk wine into powdered sugar, ½ tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is met. Set aside.

Let brownies cool then glaze.

This recipe should be easy to follow, but if you find yourself in a hurry, there’s another way. You can always replace the water in the recipe of a box of brownie mix for a deliciously decadent and super simple treat. Keep an eye on the baking time, though. You may need to add 5-10 minutes to the recommended baking time in the instructions.

Cheers to sweet treats and the tasty wines that pair with them!
