I would like to thank Vancouver Island Brewery for the recipe for these awesome cookies! I have altered the recipe slightly to taste removing white chocolate and replacing it with dark chocolate.
2 Bottles Hermannator Ice Bock (or equivalent imperial ice bock)
1 cup brown sugar (two portions of 1/2 cup)
2 & 3/4 cups of flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp espresso powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp backing soda
1/2 cup butter softened to room temperature
1/2 cup shortening (I used vegetable shortening)
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 cups milk chocolate chips
1.5 cups dark chocolate chips
Put beer and 1/2 cup brown sugar into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Reduce mixture until syrupy and measures 1/3 cup. In a medium saucepan this takes around 30-45 min (in a small one it is hours oops). Watch it carefully because you do not want to scorch it. Remove syrup from heat. Set aside to cool slightly.
Obviously my portions were too big. These are amazing moist chocolate chip cookies that taste amazing. Run out and pick up a 6 pack so you can make cookies and Chili!
