• 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup beer (pale ale or IPA)
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda


Put the cream cheese and half the chocolate (2 oz) into a bowl. Heat in microwave until soft (neither really melts, but you should be able to mix them to an even consistency after they're heated.)

Add the sugar, and mix well. Add the beer, the flour, and finally the rest of the chocolate chips, while continuing to mix.

Add the baking soda. Mix quickly, since I think the beer will start to trigger the soda immediately.

Pour the batter into a pan and bake at 350 F for 35 minutes, or the usual knife-comes-out-clean test.
