RECIPE: Guinness Chocolate Syrup

Guinness Chocolate Syrup #stpatricksday #dessert

I ‘pinned’ this recipe a long time ago and with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I had the perfect opportunity to give it a try. One of my favorite treats is having a bowl of vanilla ice cream covered in chocolate syrup. Simply delicious! I made up a double batch of this syrup and brought it to a dinner party (along with some ice cream of course) to serve with dessert. Everyone loved it!

Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 2 cups
  • 1 cup Guinness beer
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium size pot. Place pot onto the stove and whisk until smooth. Continue whisking and bring the syrup just to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Let cool before bottling. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Makes 2 cups.

Note: Do not leave your kitchen while you are bringing the chocolate to a boil! Watch it like a hawk and turn down the heat as soon as it starts to bubble. It can boil over in an instant, so keep an eye on it or else you’ll end up with a chocolaty stove to clean (I learned this the hard way).
