Day 255: Guinness Brownies with Sauce

Yield: 1 8 inch square pan
Time (Start to Finish): 45 min

3 oz unsweetened chocolate
4 Tbsp butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup Guinness beer
1 cup flour
pinch salt
½ cup chopped walnuts

4 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1-2 oz Guinness

1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 8 inch square pan
2. Place the butter and the chocolate in a bowl and melt until smooth
3. Add the sugar and stir
4. When cool enough, add the eggs and stir
5. Add the vanilla and the flour and stir until half combined
6. Add the Guinness and salt and stir until combined
7. Pour into the pan and sprinkle walnuts on top
8. Bake about 25 min until they are almost cooked through, and when you stick a knife in the center, a little bit if crumbs sticks to the blade. If you over bake they will be dry
9. To make the sauce, heat the Guinness on the stove until about to boil
10. Pour over the chocolate chips, and whisk to melt.
11. Pour over the brownies as you serve them

Rating: 4 strawberries
Notes: I think I just found my new favorite brownie recipe. These are very cakelike, which is great. My other brownie recipe is fudgy, so its nice to have 2 different kinds. The only reason these got a low rating is because they didn’t taste much like Guinness. I wanted more flavor there, and the chocolate sauce was great, but the same problem. You have to make these though. I brought them to work, and they were eaten like ive never seen before. Also, they became a last minute birthday present for mac’s friends will and murdo…happy birthday boys. Try these out though, for real they are great. You can sub the beer for hot water, milk, or any flavored liquid you like, but beer is really the best
