1/4 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. Guinness
2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. butter, melted and cooled
1 c. flour
2/3 c. Hershey's cocoa powder
5 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. Guinness
1/4 c. confectioners sugar
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Grease a 9x9 baking pan, then line with parchment paper.
To make the brownies: Mix the oil, Guinness, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Add in the butter and mix. Add in the eggs and mix completely.
In a separate medium sized bowl, combine the flour and cocoa powder.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined.
Spread evenly in the prepared pan.
Bake 35-38 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool.
To make the ganache: Add the chips, butter, and Guinness in a microwave safe bowl. Melt about 30 seconds. Whisk. Melt for another 10 seconds. Whisk until smooth.
Add in the confectioners sugar. Whisk again until completely mixed.
Pour and spread over brownies. Cut into bars.
Delicious. Guinness and chocolate is such a winning combination.
