Guinness Stout Skillet Brownies with Salted Chocolate Guinness Frosting are a perfect treat for celebrating St. Patrick’s day. Chocolate and Beer. A perfect food pairing.
There are two camps for brownies the fudgy camp and the cakey camp. I am in the fudgy camp when it comes to brownies. I love the ooey gooey goodness of a brownie with melted chocolate chips fresh out of the oven. I save cake like texture for cake. These Guinness Stout Skillet Brownies are so ridiculously fudgy. chock full of melty chocolate chips and to make them extra decadent they are topped with a dark chocolate frosting made with more Guinness Stout and big fat sea salt flakes. YUM
When Cost Plus World Market asked me to created a recipe for Discover for St. Patrick’s day I knew I wanted to do something with Guinness. I am not a huge fan of traditional Irish foods such as corned beef and cabbage and anything dyed green isn’t my thing either. I wanted to do something with beer instead. Guinness in brownies? Yes please.
These are incredibly easy to make in a skillet. Easy clean up too. My husband took one of the batches of these Guinness Stout Skillet Brownies to work and he said they were gone in seconds and people asked him to have me make more!! Don’t forget the big fat flake salt for the top. The salt is perfect with the sweetness of the frosting. And of course sprinkle more chocolate chips on top as well. These go great with a cold Guinness stout to drink too.
The recipe for these Guinness Stout Skillet Brownies are over on Discover, a blog by Cost Plus World Market. Directions as well as step by step photos are there too. I hope you enjoy these brownies as much as I did. And as much as my husband’s coworkers did too!!
Enjoy and happy St. Patrick’s day!
