Impress your St. Paddy's Day guests with these brownies made from Guinness and topped with Baileys cheesecake!



3⁄4 cup Guinness Draught Stout

1 & 1/4 cups sugar

1⁄2 cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3⁄4 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

2⁄3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup flour


2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

1 & 1/4 cups heavy cream

1⁄3 cup Baileys Irish Cream

1⁄2 cup sugar

3⁄4 teaspoon salt

Cocoa powder, for garnish


1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

2. Brownie: In a large bowl, whisk together Guinness Draught Stout, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and salt. Whisk in eggs one at a time. Whisk in cocoa powder and flour.

3. Prepare an 9x13-inch square pan. Spray with cooking spray and then line with

parchment so the excess parchment hangs over the two sides. Pour in brownie batter and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

4. Cheesecake: Use a hand mixer to beat the cream cheese on high. Pour in heavy cream and Baileys Irish Cream and beat. Add sugar and salt, then beat until everything is smooth and well incorporated. Pour cheesecake filling on top of cooled brownies. Refrigerate overnight. Slice and garnish with cocoa powder.
