We can all agree that brownies are a go-to bar cookie that we all love. I have a few different brownie recipes, and the eggnog and bourbon in these Spiked Eggnog Brownies make these a great festive treat for the holidays.

These brownies are made in a jelly roll pan and are a bit thinner than traditional brownies. If you want them thicker, just make them in a 9″x13″ pan instead, reduce the baking temperature to 375° and increase the cooking time by about 10 minutes.
