Mint Chocolate Guinness Brownies! Easy and fun green brownies made with quick mint icing and Guinness! Perfect for Saint Patrick's Day! Fun and festive | The Cookie Rookie

My very FAVORITE holiday is coming soon!!! I think because I have red(ish) hair and virtually translucent skin, I have always loved Saint Patrick’s Day.  Redheads look best in green! Takes me back to my roots.  A couple years ago my family was able to travel to Ireland for vacation and it was the trip of a lifetime.  We had fabulous food, saw the most beautiful landscapes I’ve ever seen in person, and drank Guiness from the tap (in very small quantities haha).  It was so fun.  Guinness might not be quite the same in bottle form, but it’s still an Irish classic that pairs surprisingly well with your favorite brownies! Add some mint icing on the top, and you’re set! Mint Chocolate Guinness Brownies! Easy and fun green brownies made with quick mint icing and Guinness! Perfect for Saint Patrick's Day!

Ingredients

  • 1 box of your favorite fudge brownie mix (plus ingredients listed on box)
  • 3/4 cup Guinness (or stout beer)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup softened butter
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 tablespoon mint extract
  • 2 tablespoons skim milk
  • Green food coloring (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat Guinness in a small saucepan over medium/high heat for about 12 minutes. You are making a reduction, so the beer should reduce to about 1/3 cup in this amount of time. Take off of heat and set aside.
  2. Mix brownie box ingredients according to package instructions. If the box gives you the option of fudgy vs. cake brownies, go with fudgy.
  3. Add Guinness reduction to batter and stir completely. Add chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  4. Cook brownies according to package instructions.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  6. Using an electric mixer, beat butter until creamed. Add in the powdered sugar one cup at a time. Add milk and continue to beat until a fluffy icing forms. Add in the mint extract and food coloring (optional).
  7. Once brownies are completely cool, Ice with icing and place in fridge for 30 minutes to allow the icing to set.
  8. Cut and serve. Enjoy!

Hi. These look great but I'm puzzled as to why you use packet mixes when you obviously bake a lot? Especially as we jsut don't get these cake mixes in the UK. Could you not add in a complete bake instruction for those of us who are anti bought mixes with all their preservatives etc please? Thank you for reading a nd for great ideas :)

    Hey Karrie, I actually barely ever bake if you can believe that. I started this blog as I'm learning to cook, two years ago I couldn't even scramble an egg lol. So I'm kind of taking baby steps into the baking world. This would work with any of your favorite brownie recipes. I just didn't want to be insincere and not be honest that I used a mix. Hope that makes sense! Thanks SO much for stopping by!
