Guinness Brownies

I love these Guinness brownies. Originally I had no plans of eating them but one thing led to another and here we are a few hours later with an empty pan in front of me and a glass of milk in my hand. I know, they have BEER in the batter. Gross, right?

Actually, not so much. The dark brew brings in an unbelievable richness that pairs oh-so well with the chocolate. Almost like blow your mind good.

So give them a try. These are a fun, and festive, way to celebrate St Patrick’s day and I hope you give them a chance.

Tips and FAQs:

  • I mixed in some chocolate chips but you probably do not really need to. It is plenty rich all on its own. Wait until these have cooled slightly, cut, and enjoy.
  • They Guinness chocolate brownies are especially delicious with a generous scoop of ice cream plopped right on top!
  • Pro Tip: Use a plastic knife to cut your brownies!
