Recipe: Guinness Brownies

MF Guinness Brownies In honor of St. Patrick's Day, it's time once again for a baking with beer recipe! This brownie recipe is decadent, fudge-y, and oh so rich! There is no strange beer taste (or aftertaste) in this recipe. The beer actually enhances the richness of the chocolate, for swoon-worthy bite after bite. Make a batch of these for St. Patrick's Day and you'll have an instant party wherever you go. (Plus, these are perfectly fine for kids since the alcohol bakes off in the high temperature oven.) Guinness Brownies 1 cup flour 3/4 cup cocoa powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate 3/4 cup white chocolate chips 4 eggs, room temperature 1 cup sugar 1 1/4 cups Guinness Extra Stout beer, room temperature, no foam 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips Directions Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13 pan. In a medium bowl, stir flour, cocoa powder, and salt until evenly combined. In a double boiler over low heat, melt butter, bittersweet and semi-sweet chocolate, and white chocolate chips, stirring frequently until completely melted and smooth. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar on high speed until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add a few spoonfuls of the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture to temper it. Stir until combined. Then pour all the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and beat well. Add the flour mixture slowly into the egg mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in the beer, followed by the semi-sweet chocolate chips and mix until combined. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool before serving. Looking for other beer recipes? Check out our Tangy Cheese Soup, Beer Bread, and Tailgate Chili. Yum!
