So, gather your ingredients, preheat your oven, and let’s dive into the delicious world of Guinness and Baileys-infused bliss!

Embrace the Fusion: Guinness Brownies

To kickstart our baking endeavor, we begin with the star of the show: Guinness Brownies. I don’t believe in messing with perfection so I used the recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction.

These moist, chocolatey delights are infused with the robust flavors of Ireland’s famous stout, lending them a depth and richness unlike any other brownie you’ve tasted. The secret lies in the careful balance of ingredients, combining butter, sugar, eggs, cocoa powder, flour, and of course, a generous pour of reduced Guinness stout.

Sally’s trick to getting the creamy Guinness flavor to infuse into the brownies is to reduce the Guinness in a saucepan before adding it to the recipe. I reduced an entire 20-ounce can of Guinness Irish Stout. I used 2/3 cup in the brownies and the rest in my Cottage Pie!

The result? A batch of brownies that boasts a perfect marriage of intense chocolate flavor and a subtle hint of malty goodness.
