guinness chocolate fudge brownies

8 oz semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces
4 oz white chocolate, broken into pieces
8 tbsp unsalted butter (1 stick)
4 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 12 oz. bottle of Guinness

icing sugar for dusting (optional)

preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with foil, leaving overhang to lift brownies up once baked and cooled. Butter lightly.

in a medium saucepan, melt the chocolates and the butter over very low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat chocolate mixture into egg mixture. Whisk the flour, salt, and cocoa together. Beat into the chocolate mixture. Beat in the Guinness.

pour mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a cake tester or skewer inserted in the center of brownie comes out almost clean. Remove from the oven to cooling rack and let cool. Lift out of pan and cut into small squares (very moist and deep chocolate flavor), dust with icing sugar.

Add some ice cold Guinness or any of the Irish ales or stouts or Irish soda pop and maybe a pack or two of those Irish Tayto Chips found in the Irish section of Jungle Jim's, and you're celebrating St. Patty's Day in grand picnic style! Top of the Mornin' to You!
