Recipe: Guinness Brownies

In September I was looking for beer recipes for a dinner party.   I made the wonderful Gingerbread Guinness Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.   However, when I went to the liquor store to buy the Guinness, they didn't have the individual cans, so I bought a four-pack.  I found a recipe for Triple Chocolate Stout Beer Brownies.   Since I don't really like to drink beer, I think I'll just bake it all off.  Can #2 of Guinness is now history.
12 oz Guinness
1 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter (melted)
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
2 cups flour  (I added about 2 tablespoons more due to altitude)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
The brownies have a firm cake-like texture so I decided to slice one in half to make a brownie whoopie pie (see picture above) and fill it with just a little cream cheese frosting.  What a tasty experiment. 
Line your 13x9 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.   Preheat oven to 350. 
In a large bowl, whisk together Guinness and cocoa powder until blended and smooth.  Whisk in sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs, one at a time.  Blend well.   Add flour and salt;  whisk until smooth.  Stir in the chocolate chips.   Bake 42-45 minutes until top is shiny and dry.    Remove from oven and let cool completely.   Use the foil to pull it from the pan to slice into your favorite brownie size.

I want your sole! This October (and early November) I'm participating in the Soles 4 Souls Flippin' Good Deeds Challenge. For more information about the challenge and how you (wherever you are) and your shoes can get involved to help others, please click here. That being said, I am going to try and incorporate shoes in every post I do this month. So here goes....

Saturday was my lazy cooking day.   I tried not to wear structured shoes.
