Let's celebrate National Dessert Day the right way! These stout brownies are so rich and fudgy. You will love how quickly they come together. They're perfect for a busy weeknight.


8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (open up that chocolate chip bag with your Strip-n-Snip scissors)
1 cup butter, cubed
1 cup milk stout beer
1 large egg, room temperature
2 large egg yolks, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar (the Spoon Buddy measures exactly 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
Vanilla ice cream, optional


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place chocolate in a large bowl. In a 10-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, combine butter and stout. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over chocolate; stir with a whisk until smooth. Cool slightly. In another large bowl, beat egg, egg yolks and sugars until blended. Stir in chocolate mixture. In another bowl, mix flour, baking cocoa and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture, mixing well.
2. Spread into skillet. Use the Pan Buddy™ to transfer to the oven and bake until set, 25-30 minutes. Cool completely in skillet on a wire rack. If desired, serve with vanilla ice cream.
