Chocolate Guinness Brownies

Ryan and I made these one night, and they turned out really good! (Thanks for the recipe, RK!) And NO you won't get drunk from them!

PS - Specialty grocery stores like Central Market will sale you one beer at a time so you don't have to buy a whole pack that you probably won't drink! Unless you like Guinness.....

4 eggs
¾ cup superfine sugar
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
8 oz. white chocolate chips
6 tbsp. unsalted butter
¾ cup all-purpose flour
¾ cup cocoa
1-12oz. bottle of Guinness Ale
Confectioners sugar for dusting
Option fruit sauce for topping (see below)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square pan.

Combine eggs and sugar in bowl. Beat until light and fluffy.

In medium saucepan, melt the chocolate and white chocolate chips and butter over medium heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and beat into the egg mixture.

Sift the flour and cocoa together and beat into the chocolate mixture. Whisk in the Guinness.

Pour into the pan and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick is inserted in the center and comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack.

To serve, dust the cake with confectioners’ sugar and cut into squares. Can also top with homemade fruit sauce. (See below.) Store leftovers in refrigerator.

Macerated Strawberries/Raspberries

In small bowl, combine 1 package of strawberries or raspberries and 1/4 cup sugar. Using a fork, lightly mash the berries and mix with sugar. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Do you think a milk stout would work instead of Guinness?
