Somehow I ended up with one lone bottle of chocolate stout beer. I knew I wasn’t going to like it straight, and I was kind of saving it for a chocolate cake for my birthday. But then we went away, I got sick, and a birthday cake never happened.

These brownies were surprisingly easy to whip up, despite the ingredients needing to be weighed. Yeah, sorry about that, I was going to figure out the cup measurements for you as I went along but Ladybug wanted to help me and that just didn’t happen. But these were still really easy to make – just a bowl or two and you are done!

These brownies were totally completely and utterly amazing. Yeah, I went there. The chocolate stout was sooo very subtle. At times I couldn’t even taste it, and then all the sudden a taste of it would pop through. The brownies themselves were the perfect combination of fudgy and cakey, and the peanut butter swirls were perfect. I am kind of sad I only made one batch because they went super fast. And I really wanted one the next day.

    You know, I always looked down on brownies… But I'm rethinking this!
