Make The Brownie Mix

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper, cutting it wide enough to hang over the long edges In a saucepan over a medium heat melt the butter with the dark chocolate and Guinness then remove it from the heat. In a large mixing bowl beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence together until light and fluffy then fold in the chocolate mix. Mix together the flour, cocoa powder and salt, then mix it into the wet ingredients in two batches, trying not to knock out too much air.
