Original recipe yields 1 9x13-inch pan

Directions

  1. Place oven rack in the center position. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk flour, cocoa powder, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Melt bittersweet chocolate, white chocolate chips, and butter in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Remove from heat.
  4. Beat white sugar and eggs together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Slowly add melted chocolate mixture and beat until just combined. Add flour mixture, 2 to 3 tablespoons at a time, until just combined. Whisk in beer until batter is thin; fold in pecans.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish; sprinkle semisweet chocolate chips over batter.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the brownies comes out with moist crumbs, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool to room temperature; dust top with confectioners' sugar.

These brownies were outstanding! Everyone at our family get together was raving about them! The texture is not that of a traditional brownie- they were very light and silky, almost mousse like. I think the beer cut down on the sugar as these weren't overly sweet, just a nice balance of sweetness. I will definitely be making these again!!!

Made these this afternoon for a potluck, and they were devoured! I forgot to add the chocolate chips on top, but that didn't matter. For the powdered sugar, I put about 1/4 cup in a strainer, then tapped the strainer over the brownies to make a nice topping. Due to allergies, I left out the nuts. They weren't gooey at all, and they're more of a cake-like texture. The kids want me to make them again tomorrow!

Great recipe! Unlike a lot of recipes with alcohol, I could actually taste the beer in these brownies and the flavor wasn't overwhelming. Changes: I cut the sugar down by 1/4 cup (I generally do this in recipes); used Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips instead of chopping 8 oz; and melted the chocolate in the microwave for 1 min, stirred, then 20 seconds more in the mic instead of the double boiler. Other than those changes, I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I will mix the semisweet chocolate chips in so that there can be gooey chocolate bits throughout.
