- In a large saucepan over medium heat cook the Guinness and brown sugar together for 15-20 minutes (please note depending on the size of your saucepan the cooking time may reduce or increase). The mixture will reduce to 1/3 cup. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment or a large bowl with a handheld electric mixer beat the butter for 2 minutes, add sugars, and beat for another 4 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla mix for 2-3 minutes until fully incorporated. Mix in Guinness mixture.
- In a medium bowl mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Slowly add dry ingredients into wet ingredients, until just combined. Fold in chocolate and let chill for at least 2 hours or up to 2 days.
- Preheat to 350F/180C and line a baking sheet with Silpat liner, if using. Using a medium cookie scoop pace a heaping scoop (2 tbsp) of dough on the sheet and place more chocolate on top of each dough for looks if you want. Bake for 9 minutes, the dough will be just set but take out of the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
