Guinness Bacon Brownies

It should be no surprise to hear that we’re huge Guinness fans here at Bacon Today. We’ve made Guinness Waffles, Guinness BBQ Sauce, Green Guinness Beer-Battered Bacon, a Guinness Milkshake, and of course our Guinness Challah Bread! The only thing we love more than cooking with Guinness is drinking it right out of the bottle. Mmmmmm!

We love experimenting in the kitchen with Guinness, but sometimes we like to make a “classic” Guinness and bacon recipe like these brownies. We’ve created a super simple recipe that uses box brownie mix for those who want to get their bacon brownie fix in stat. All you’ll need is bacon, brownie mix, oil, Guinness and eggs for the brownies and powdered sugar and butter for the frosting. This recipe serves a crowd so take it to a St. Patrick’s Day potluck or just eat the whole tray yourself.


1 lb. cooked, chopped bacon
2 boxes of brownie mix (we used Ghirardelli double chocolate)
2 eggs
2/3 cup Guinness Stout
2/3 cup oil
2 sticks softened butter
2 cups powdered sugar


Lightly beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add the Guinness and the oil and stir. Add the brownie mix to the liquid ingredients and stir until combined. Add half the bacon to the batter and stir again.

Pour into a greased 9” x 11” casserole dish. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

For the frosting, add the powdered sugar to the butter and whip with a hand mixer. May add 2-4 Tbsp. of Guinness for even more stout flavor. Frost the brownies after they have cooled and top with the remaining bacon. Enjoy!
