  • 2 boxes of your favorite brownie mix
  • dash of salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of oil
  • 1/4 cup Guinness Stout
  • 1/4 cup of Harp Lager
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 of a cup milk chocolate morsels
  • 1 container of vanilla icing
  • 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • mint sprigs
  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large glass mixing bowl add 2 boxes of your favorite brownie mix, a dash of salt, 1 and 1/2 cups of oil, 1/4 of a cup Guinness Stout, 1/4 of a cup Harp Lager, and 4 lightly beaten eggs. Mix ingredients well to thoroughly combine. Fold in 1/2 of a cup milk chocolate morsels.
  3. Adjust the oven rack to the middle level and be sure to have already preheated oven to 350 F degrees. Line the bottom and sides of a 9×11 inch square baking pan with aluminum parchment paper, leaving an overhang on all sides. Set aside.
  4. Pour prepared batter into the baking pan and bake for 38-45 minutes or until the brownies begin to pull away from the edges of the pan. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out with only a few moist crumbs when the brownies are done.
  5. Note: all ovens vary in temperature and a careful eye should be used when baking since temperatures vary from oven to oven.
  6. Completely cool the brownies in the baking pan set on a wire rack. Once cooled, lift the parchment paper out of the pan using the overhang on the sides and cut into squares. For neat squares, use a very sharp knife and wipe it clean with a paper towel after each cut.
  7. Meanwhile, in a smaller glass mixing bowl combine 1 container of vanilla icing and 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder – reserve till needed.
  8. Once brownies are 100% cool to the touch, ice them – place a sprig of fresh mint on the top right before serving.
