Frosted Guinness Brownies You Can Try This Weekend
St. Patrick’s Day is a big celebration in my house. When it comes to the food usually people automatically think of shepherd’s pie or a savory potato dish. For this holiday you definitely see a lot of green desserts, but my first thought was chocolate and Guinness. Stout already has an undertone of chocolate so why not highlight it in a rich dessert. The brownies on there own are not overly sweet, but when you add on top the creamy liqueur frosting it creates a great combination of bittersweet.
