Guinness Stout BrowniesStep
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a 9×13 inch pan with non-stick or regular foil, lightly greased.
  2.  Pour both bottles of beer into a medium sauce pan and simmer down until it’s reduced to 1 1/4 cups.  Leave beer on the side to cool down.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa and salt until combined.  Put to the side.
  4. Use a double boiler to melt butter, the chocolate and white chips over very low heat.  If you do not have a double boiler, place a heat-proof bowl over a pot of boiling water.  Place chocolate and butter in bowl and stir until melted, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and put to the side.In a separate, large mixing bowl beat eggs and sugar on high speed until light and fluffy (approximately 3 minutes).  Add melted chocolate mixture and beat until combined.
  5. Beat the flour mixture into the melted chocolate mixture.  Whisk in the reduced beer and vanilla.  The batter will seem thin, which is fine.
  6. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top of the batter.
  7. Pour batter into prepared 9×13 pan and place in oven on center rack for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean.
  8. Let brownies cool completely, uncovered.  Sprinkle powdered sugar on brownies if desired.oila! Guinness Extra Stout Beer Brownies…chocolatey goodness.  They are not overly sweet, and the texture is very dense, which I love.  I would really like them if I couldn’t detect the taste of beer (which, I realize, is the actual point of this recipe!).  Even still, I would recommend them. I baked these as a trial run for the upcoming fundraiser I’m contributing treats to.  My two beer-appreciating taste testers said these are an unqualified success and will be a big hit.  I think they will be, too.  Cheers!
