St. Patrick’s Day elicits thoughts of our favorite Irish alcohols, Bailey’s and Guinness. While the two are fabulous to consume as beverages, you can also create some fantastic desserts with them. Check out these five tempting treats that use both as ingredients as you celebrate this holiday season.
Bailey’s Ice Cream With Guinness Chocolate Ripple – Yup, you read that right. Cincy Shopper has created the decadent combination of the two in a dessert that will make you think of your childhood, but with an adult twist. You don’t even need an ice cream maker. Whip together the ingredients for the ice cream, which you layer with a Guinness chocolate sauce that you make on the stove. Freeze it for at least six hours and then scoop to your heart’s delight.
Guinness Cupcakes With Bailey’s Frosting – Perhaps cupcakes are more your style with sweets. Cincy Shopper also has these heavenly cupcakes made from scratch that have a bit of Guinness for some added flavor. Then make a creamy frosting using Bailey’s instead of milk and top off with your favorite garnish. You could even serve them with a side of that ice cream.
Guinness Cupcakes With Irish Cream Frosting – If you’re not up to making cupcakes from scratch, Just Us Four has a version made with a mix and a lot more Guinness. Spend more time focusing on the ganache, which includes whiskey, and then that fantastic Irish cream frosting. Talk about an added kick!
Chocolate Baked Guinness Donuts With Irish Cream Glaze – Thrifty Jinxy uses Guinness in these baked donuts and then covers them with a simple glaze based in Irish cream. These look like the ultimate Bailey’s and Guinness combination for dessert!
Chocolate Guinness Cake – Satisfy your sweet tooth with this bundt cake from Taking Time for Mommy that has Guinness in it. She uses a salted caramel glaze on top of it, but it would go quite well with your favorite Bailey’s beverage.
