Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  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. ...

It was OK. The texture was too "cakey" and besides the actual chocolate chip topping, the brownies were not very sweet, to the point of being bland

They were perfect! I added half a bag of Heathbar Crunch, but didn't notice them that much. I used a 9x9 pan. They were very thick, and took longer to cook, but were delicious. I also butter my ...

Super sweet, super rich fudgy brownies! The chocolate seems strong enough that the beer taste doesn't show up as strong as thought it might. When nothing but a chocolate fix will do, these are ...
