7 Luck of the Irish Guinness Desserts for St. Patrick's Day!

There is nothing that screams Irish more than Guinness so in honour of  St. Patrick's Day this Sunday I've put together a group of Guinness desserts for the adults.


Guinness Chocolate Pudding:

This recipe from Closet Cooking combines Guinness with the delicious taste of chocolate.  Not only is Guinness used in the pudding recipe, it is also incorporated into the whipped cream for a double whammy of Irish cheer.

Guinness Ice Cream:

Ice cream sounds daunting I know but this recipe from Foodista for Guinness Ice Cream sounds surprisingly easy.  It only has 5 ingredients and the most difficult step is boiling beer.  That doesn't sound too difficult now, does it?

Dark Chocolate Guinness Rice Krispie Treats:

The Sweet Chick has taken a kid's dessert and turned it into a dessert the adults will be fighting over.  With Guinness in the rice krispies and in the icing they will be a huge hit.

Sweet & Salty Guinness Pie:

I am a sucker for anything that combines sweet and salty.  It is a flavour combination that I can't resist.  Now Kids in the Sink is throwing in Guinness.  Delicious!

Guinness Float with Coffee Ice Cream:

Feeling like something a little more playful?  Why not try your hand at Fader magazine's recipe for a Guinness float.  Made with coffee ice cream, salty peanuts and chocolate sauce it is a drink and dessert all rolled into one delicious glass.

Guinness Cake:

The traditionalists who prefer cake for dessert can make this delicious Guinness Cake.  I first shared Brian Leth's recipe with you last father's day.  It was a hit then and will be a hit again this St. Patrick's Day.
