You have to love anyone who puts beer in their Super Bowl brownies. It shows thoughtfulness, amusement, and creativity. To top the night off, NY won so everyone was excited. But it was the joy in that home and the little details that I'll always remember.
To make your own experimental brownies, here is a version that is heart friendly, vegan friendly and very simple. If you want to try adding 1/4 -1/2 C beer, I suggest using dry sweetener and perhaps take out the baking soda. The fizz in the beer ought to give enough rise.
This version is low in cholesterol and fat typically associated with rich chocolaty brownies.
