Chocolate Peanut Butter Boozy Brownies

Chocolate + Peanut Butter = one heck of an amazing combo. When you add DuClaw Brewing's For Pete's Sake Imperial Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter into the THAT'S what I'm talking about.  I was so thrilled to be sent a few bottles to taste and create a recipe with. One thing immediately came to mind when brainstorming recipe ideas - BROWNIES. I wanted to create something with simple ingredients to really let the beer shine through. So I present to you...Chocolate Peanut Butter Boozy Brownies. WARNING: These are HIGHLY addictive.

About the beer:

In the words of Duclaw Brewing Co., after one sip of this porter, you’ll be exclaiming “For Pete’s Sake!” And so the name was born. With an ABV of 9 percent (9 PERCENT!!), “For Pete’s Sake” is a big and bold brew, yet silky and smooth, with big roasted malt flavor and subtle notes of fruit and coffee. "For Pete's Sake!" was just released this month and is only seasonally available!

"For Pete's Sake!" is a very dark beer made with grains including Pale, Cara Munich, Chocolate, Black and Flaked Oats. The coffee flavors really stood out to me, which is another reason I chose to go with brownies here. I absolutely love the rich dark taste of espresso when used in brownies and I knew this beer would give the brownies a similar decadent feel. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Boozy Brownies will warm your soul in every possible way. Pair them with a shot of espresso and you're living.
