Beer Brownies

For the Brownies:
  • ½ c. butter
  • ½ c. granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T. dark beer
  • ⅓ c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ c. all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
For the Frosting:
  • 6 oz. milk chocolate chips
  • ¼ c. chocolate hazelnut spread
  • ⅛ c. dark beer

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease and flour a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from the heat and cool slightly; stir in the sugar, eggs, and dark beer. Beat in the cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake the brownies in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not over bake.

To make the frosting, melt the chocolate chips by microwaving them in a glass measuring cup for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating period. When the chips are melted, stir in the chocolate hazelnut spread and beer and pour and spread the mixture over the warm brownies. All the brownies and frosting to cool completely before slicing into bars and serving.
