STOUT BROWNIES WITH IRISH CREAM CHEESE SWIRL

Ingredients

STOUT BROWNIES WITH IRISH CREAM CHEESE SWIRL

  • 1 box Fudge brownie mix
  • 1 12 oz. can Stout beer
  • 2 tsp. Espresso powder divided
  • 6 T. Cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 c. Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 T. Irish Cream liquor

WHISKEY CARAMEL

  • 1/2 c. Sugar
  • 2 T. Water
  • 2 T. Heavy Cream
  • 1 T. Butter
  • 2 T. Irish whiskey

Instructions

  • Prepare the brownies as directed by the box but substituting the stout beer for the water and adding 1 tsp of Espresso powder.
  • Reserve about a cup of the brownie mix before pouring the rest into a greased 9×9 dish.
  • In a separate bowl, blend together the cream cheese, egg, sugar, Irish Cream, and remaining tsp of Espresso powder mixture.
  • Pour the cream cheese mixture across the surface of the brownie mix.
  • Pour the reserved brownie mix over the cream cheese. It doesn’t have to be neat- you’re going to do the swirls after this.
  • Using a toothpick or knife, gently swirl the cream cheese mix around into the mix.
  • Bake for the amount of time directed on the box + 25 minutes*
  • While the brownies cool, prepare the caramel sauce. In a heavy bottom sauce pan, combine sugar and water with a wooden spoon, stirring constantly over medium-high heat.
  • While cooking sugar, warm cream, butter, and salt in the microwave (approximately 30 seconds).
  • When the sugar mixture turns amber in color, slowly add the cream and combine using a rubber spatula (mixture will be very hot and bubble up).
  • Once combined, add the Irish Whiskey and allow to cool slightly before drizzling over brownies.
