Hopefully you still have some Guinness left from your early St. Patrick's Day celebration. Because this is definitely worth reserving a 30-minute time slot on your Traeger. Or just squeeze it in while your Guinness-Roasted Lamb is roasting. We're pulling out this sweet tooth recipe from our Traeger On a Budget ebook.
We know, there's no meat in it BUT you've got to save a small space for chocolate...or at least more Guinness.
Double Chocolate Chip Brownie Pie with Guinness Fudge Sauce
Recommended Pellets: Apple
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet (or bittersweet) chocolate chips
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup nuts (optional)
1 8-ounce bottle fudge sauce
1-2 tablespoons Guinness (optional)
Using nonstick cooking spray, coat the inside of a 10-inch pie plate. DO NOT try to squeeze this into a smaller pan or else it will ooze all over the grill while it bakes. If you use a larger pan, it will cook faster so keep an eye on it.
Turn your Traeger to Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4-5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat with the lid closed for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, get that pie ready by creaming (or stirring until the mixture is fluffy and light in color) together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar.
Beat in the eggs, adding one at a time and mixing after each egg, and the vanilla.
On a large piece of wax paper, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Lift up the corners of the paper and pour slowly into the butter mixture.
Beat until the dry ingredients are just incorporated. (The more you beat it, the tougher the pie will be.) Stir in the chocolate chips and the nuts (if you like nuts).
Press the dough into the prepared pie pan.
*You could also freeze the dough at this point so you have a dessert handy in case unexpected company drops by. Just line the pie pan with plastic wrap before you pour in the dough. Then put it in the freezer for a couple hours. Once it's set up, transfer the frozen dough to a resealable bag and you're set. When you want to bake it, just take it out, put it in a pie pan and let it thaw at room temperature for a couple hours and bake as directed.
Place the brownie pie on the grill and bake for 30 minutes or until the pie is set in the middle. Rotate the pan halfway through the cooking. If the top or edges start to get too brown, you can cover the top with a piece of aluminum foil.
Time to make that Guinness fudge sauce. In a microwave-safe measuring cup, heat the fudge sauce in the microwave. Stir in the Guinness. You can easily omit the Guinness to make this dessert kid-friendly.
Once the brownie pie is done, let it sit for 20 minutes to make it easier to serve. Slice it into wedges and top with the fudge sauce for instant chocolate gratification.
