Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 (16.7-ounce) package double fudge brownie mix (such as Duncan Hines)
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnut pieces, toasted

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine first 4 ingredients (including fudge packet from mix), stirring well. Spread into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near edge of pan comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
  3. Crumble brownies; place in a food processor. Add bourbon; process until mixture forms a ball (about 30 seconds).
  4. Shape brownie mixture into 24 balls, about 1 1/2 tablespoons each. Place nuts in a shallow bowl. Roll balls in nuts, pressing gently to coat.

Note

Store balls in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
