Guinness Chocolate Brownies. St Patrick’s Day gifts.

Guinness Chocolate Brownies. St Patrick’s Day gifts.

The husband is on some special 12-week diet/fitness regime at the moment which suggests egg white omelettes for breakfast most mornings.  It means we’re knee-deep in egg yolks.

This, at first glance, appeared to be a bit of a waste.  That is until I came across a recipe from a blog I follow on Bloglovin for Guinness Chocolate Brownies which requires 7 egg yolks.


And a perfect way to toast St Patrick’s Day.

The recipe is from a lovely blog called Sprinkle Bakes.  Do check it out (and while you’re on Bloglovin’, you could always follow uncalendared too.  Just saying!  Anyway, I digress…but no, seriously, you’d be most welcome!)

You can definitely taste the Guinness in these beauties, so if you’re a fan of this Irish tipple, then I think you’ll like them.  And they only require five ingredients.

I decorated some disposable coffee cups to package them and they were perfect little treats for some special friends on St Patrick’s Day.

Special thanks go out to the husband for the yolks!

Such a shame he’s unable to taste them.  Egg white omelettes er, sound, er, just as delicious.
