Guinness Brownies

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Here is a great easy recipe for a St. Patty's Day party!  The beer flavor is there, but very subtle.  Very festive if you are drinking Guinness today!

Guinness Brownies,  Adapted from
Yield: makes 16 brownies
6 oz dark semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1/2 cup, plus 1 Tbs butter, soft
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup Guinness Beer
1 eggs
2/3 cups flour
4 Tbs dark cocoa powder
6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Take an 8x8 pan, and put a sheet of parchment paper down on the bottom of the pan. I then spray the top of the parchment, and the sides of the pan with non-stick baking spray.
  3. Take the chopped chocolate and microwave it for 90 seconds.  Whisk the chocolate until very smooth. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, whip the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Add the beer and beat until well combined.
  5. Beat the eggs in one at a time, until they are completely mixed in, then slowly beat in the cooled melted chocolate.
  6. Sift the flour and coco together, and then slowly add it to the batter, mixing in until it is just combined.
  7. Add the chocolate chips, and mix until just combined.
  8. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, and spread evenly to the edges.
  9. Bake the brownies at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Do not over bake!
  10. When the brownies are finished, let them cool completely before cutting into them for the cleanest cut.
  11. Enjoy responsibly!
