Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens Tip

Add stout beer infused pecans to your brownies see the bonus recipe below. Be sure to soak the nuts at least 8 hours before making brownies. Full recipe below!


  • 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup stout beer (Chocolate Stout or Milk Stout work best)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder


Step 1

PREHEAT the oven to 350°F.

Step 2

ADD the chocolate chips, butter and stout beer to a medium sized metal bowl and put it over a pot of simmering water to create a double boiler. Continually stir with a rubber spatula until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

Step 3

MIX together in a separate large bowl the eggs, brown sugar, sugar, flour, cocoa powder, vanilla and baking powder.

Step 4

POUR the chocolate mixture into the eggs and sugar mixture and fold until combined.

Step 5

POUR the batter into a Reynolds Kitchens® Parchment Paper with SmartGrid® lined pan. Top with infused pecans if desired.

Step 6

BAKE in the oven on 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until the brownies begin to pull away from the outside of the pan.

Step 7

COOL before serving.
