Chocolate Guinness Sauce

This chocolate Guinness Sauce is perfect on top of creamy vanilla ice cream!
Chocolate Guinness Sauce by Nutmeg Nanny

I wanted to do something a little different with my Guinness so I decided to try and make a chocolate sauce. It turned out delicious and on top of vanilla ice cream it was heaven….yum!  I used bittersweet chocolate and sweetened it a bit with golden syrup and brown sugar. The Guinness flavor was mild but mixed with the chocolate it paired nicely. I have a feeling if I used Guinness extra stout it would have picked up more of the beer flavor.  Either way I would say I’m satisfied with my first ever ice cream topping and can’t wait to make more…Enjoy!!!

    Brilliant! I just saw a recipe for chocolate guiness cupcakes–I guess I need to try the combo in some form. Never would have thought to pair the two.

    Oooo… very appropriate for St. Patty’s Day :). Guinness and chocolate are made for each other. Great idea!

    Beer and chocolate – that is new to me but it actually sounds good and you have it looking good.

    Even though I’m not a fan of beer, I’d be willing to give this sauce a try! Especially when it’s served up over some ice cream :) Yum!

    Last night, I attempted a different kind of syrup for ice cream made with Guinness, and it didn’t work quite. So, I just made this one, and it’s delicious! Thanks for this.

    By any chance does the sauce freeze when it comes in contact with the ice cream? :)

      Nope. It cooled down but didn’t freeze up.
