Decadent Guinness Brownies
I made the most amazing, decadent dessert the other day.
Why was it so amazing? I attribute it to the Guinness beer it contained. I don’t even like beer, but for some reason, any dessert recipe I see containing Guinness, I then feel compelled to make.
I am not claiming in any way that these brownies are healthy, nutritional, or good for you. They are however, the perfect decadent treat to bake up to impress for a party. These brownies are creamy, rich, and the salt from the pretzels? Words.cannot.describe.
I wasn’t really up for purchasing an entire 6 pack of Guinness… so luckily the Fresh Market just down the street sells all different kinds of individual bottle’s of beer. If you don’t live near the Fresh Market, you just might have to drink the 5 remaining beers or make more brownies!
Make these brownies as soon as possible. You will thank me.
