Add some booze to your brownies with hard root beer, then top them off with peanut butter frosting and a syrupy hard root beer reduction. For the win!
It’s time to play Duck Hunt! Seriously, click that link and you can play Duck Hunt. But what I am really trying to say is…
Tonight the Bucks take on the Ducks in the first College Football Playoff championship game, so of course I couldn’t resist the opportunity to break in the new kitchen with some peanut butter and chocolate goodness. While out shopping for things for the house I stumbled upon Sprecher hard root beer, so why not throw it in there too? These hard root beer brownies are super thick, dense, and rich. After getting topped off with peanut butter frosting and hard root beer syrup, these brownies are game-time ready!

Instead of putting ice cream in your root beer to make a root beer float, put the root beer in your ice cream! Made with root beer creme flavored Oreos and root beer syrup.
You would think with my root beer obsession that it would also include root beer floats. You would be wrong in this assumption. I prefer root beer to be served in a cold glass, untarnished by any other ingredients. However I have discovered that I do enjoy it cooked into sloppy joes, pulled pork, brownies, and chocolate cake. So when I passed by a display of the newest Oreo flavors I couldn’t resist snatching up a package of the root beer float creme flavored golden Oreos. It took me awhile to decide what to make and ended up throwing them into yet another no-churn ice cream recipe. And guess what? I freaking loved it! Apparently as far as root beer float flavored desserts go, I am sold. I even made a root beer syrup which is just root beer cooked down. Maybe I should revisit an actual root beer float?
P.S. This recipe was also inspired by my upcoming trip to Seattle with Kita to visit Peabody next month! We’re going on a root beer (and any other spectacular foods we can get our hands on) adventure!

I hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend! I’m having a fun time catching up with my now 5 month old nephew in Boston and rejoicing in the start of college football season. I am a little traveling gnome, because I was only home 12 hours before being whisked away again. When I get back I’ll only be home about 3 days before heading out once more for a wedding in Nashville, and then a conference in San Francisco. Wee!
Today marks another 2nd of the month which means another Culinary.net post! Check out this easy root beer brownies I made for you HERE.
