cooking spray with flour
dark cocoa powder (such as Hershey's® Special Dark)
bittersweet chocolate (such as Ghirardelli®), chopped
white chocolate chips (such as Ghirardelli®)
butter at room temperature, cut into cubes
eggs, room temperature
1 1/4 cups
Irish stout beer (such as Guinness® Extra Stout), room temperature and foam skimmed off
semisweet chocolate chips (such as Nestle® Toll House®)
sifted confectioners' sugar, or as needed
These brownies were outstanding! Everyone at our family get together was raving about them! The texture is not that of a traditional brownie- they were very light and silky, almost mousse like. I think the beer cut down on the sugar as these weren't overly sweet, just a nice balance of sweetness. I will definitely be making these again!!!
Made these this afternoon for a potluck, and they were devoured! I forgot to add the chocolate chips on top, but that didn't matter. For the powdered sugar, I put about 1/4 cup in a strainer, then tapped the strainer over the brownies to make a nice topping. Due to allergies, I left out the nuts. They weren't gooey at all, and they're more of a cake-like texture. The kids want me to make them again tomorrow!
Great recipe! Unlike a lot of recipes with alcohol, I could actually taste the beer in these brownies and the flavor wasn't overwhelming. Changes: I cut the sugar down by 1/4 cup (I generally do this in recipes); used Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips instead of chopping 8 oz; and melted the chocolate in the microwave for 1 min, stirred, then 20 seconds more in the mic instead of the double boiler. Other than those changes, I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I will mix the semisweet chocolate chips in so that there can be gooey chocolate bits throughout.
Super sweet, super rich fudgy brownies! The chocolate seems strong enough that the beer taste doesn't show up as strong as thought it might. When nothing but a chocolate fix will do, these are definitely the thing to serve! Thanks for the recipe!
These were great. I replaced 1/2 cup of the morsels with the new cherry filled morsels and it made the brownies have a Black Forest flavor, well loved by the recipients.
WOW, these are AWESOME!!!!!! I omitted the nuts and stirred the chocolate chips right into the batter (I used mini choco chips). Fudgy, moist, rich and just plain delicious...I will def be making these again and again~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)
This recipe is so quick and easy! The brownies came out great! They are very rich and moist. I made a few changes due to lack of ingredients such as: using milk instead of beer, using walnuts instead of pecans, microwaving the butter and chocolate mixture, and not adding chocolate chips on top. I had to bake it for around 45-50 minutes instead, but it tastes absolutely divine!
Superb - and a lovely trick to turn for St. Pat's! I had concerns putting that pan in the oven; the batter is quite "loose"; but the eggs did their job. I might substitute a merlot instead sometime...
