  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients. 
  2. Step 2

    Prepare and bake the brownies in a 9 x 9-inch pan according to the package directions. Use a 9 x 13 pan if you prefer thinner brownies.
  3. Step 3

    As soon as the baked brownies are removed from the oven, cool them off for 10 minutes before brushing them evenly with the bourbon. Place the pan of brownies on a cooling rack and place them both in the refrigerator.
  4. Step 4

    Cream the butter with the rum and powdered sugar using a standing mixer or a whisk. Mix until the sugar is fully incorporated into the butter mixture and the texture is creamy with no lumps.
  5. Step 5

    Remove the brownies from the refrigerator and spread the rum icing evenly on the cooled brownies. Place the brownie pan back in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Melt the chocolate chips with the shortening in a double bath: Place a medium-sized pot with water on the stove, and bring it to a simmer. Add the chocolate chips and shortening into a small saucepan and place it on top of the pot with hot water. Mix with a rubber spatula until the chips are melted and well incorporated with the shortening.
  7. Step 7

    Remove the brownies from the refrigerator and drizzle all the chocolate on top of the brownies. Place them back in the fridge until it's time to serve.
