Instructions
For the bars
Place beer in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 15 minutes, until beer is reduced to a little less than a 1/4 cup of liquid.
Remove from heat and add the Ghirardelli baking chips. Stir until all the chocolate is melted. Then put it aside to cool off a little and thicken.
In a large sauce pan, melt butter and marshmallows over low heat. Stir until completely melted.
Remove from heat and add the beer/chocolate mix. Stir until completely mixed.
Then add the Rice Krispie cereal and the Hershey's chocolate chips. Mix until all is well incorporated.
Then pour the mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan or a cookie sheet and spread it evenly with a piece of waxed paper.
Place in fridge to cool and set.
For the frosting
Place beer in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 15 minutes, until beer is reduced to a little less than a 1/4 cup of liquid.
Remove from heat and add the Ghirardelli baking chips. Stir until all the chocolate is melted. Then put it aside to cool off a little and thicken.
In a stand mixer, place the powdered sugar and cocoa. Mix on low until well blended.
Then add the shortening, vanilla, and beer/chocolate mixture. Mix on medium speed until frosting starts to come together.
Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until frosting becomes light and fluffy.
Spread the frosting evenly over the chilled Rice Krispie Treats with a spatula and add sprinkles if desired.
You can keep the treats refrigerated if you are not eating them right away. However, they can be left out at room temperature.
