Did you know Guinness is the worldwide drink of choice to celebrate Irish culture? I've been to the Guinness factory in Dublin and it was such an interesting and fun experience! These delicious moist Guinness Chocolate Brownies are the perfect way to celebrate St Patrick's Day (or any day you fancy a tasty chocolate brownie!) The addition of Guinness to the brownies intensifies the flavour and makes them super gooey and rich. I absolutely love Guiness in cakes and baking, my Chocolate Guiness Cake with Baileys Buttercream is my favourite cake ever!

How to make Guinness Chocolate Brownies
Start by melting dark chocolate, butter and Guinness in a pan on a low heat until glossy and smooth. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes. In a bowl whisk together eggs and light brown sugar.
Then add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and whisk it together. Finally add plain flour and baking powder, and mix in. Pour the mixture into a baking tin and bake for 30 minutes.
When the Guinness Chocolate Brownies are baked, leave them to cool before slicing into squares.
The Guinness Chocolate Brownies are so incredibly moist and fudgey! And warning, they're rather addictive too!
I highly recommend eating them warm! They would be amazing with ice cream too.
