Because You Always Wanted to Make Guinness Brownies

I really feel the need to preface this post by saying that I am not a food photographer.  As much as I like food, I take really awful pictures of food.  That said, I wish my blog had smell-o-vision as well as a way you can lick the screen to taste my brownies, because these fantastic morsels taste and smell as amazing as they look, I swear.

I am not a fan of making brownies.  I am always worried that I may over or under cook them not to mention having to cut them and I can never cut them to make them look pretty.  Mine look torn and messy.  But, there is this potluck at work and I had this bottle of Guinness begging me to do something with it so I tossed caution to the wind and made - brownies!

I browsed pinterest for just the right recipe.  Spending precious minutes (or hours) gazing at all of the choices that this search gave me.  Brownies, brownies and more brownies all made with that wonderfully dark liquid goodness. I clicked and pinned and pinned and clicked, until I narrowed it down to three that I really liked.

And, finally decided on the recipe that I would use.

Three boxes of Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownie and a bottle of Guinness, made as directed but instead of water I used beer, threw mini chocolate chips all over the batter then topped it off with caramel in the last ten minutes of baking.
