Guinness & Chocolate Dessert Bar

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, we have an incredible dessert bar to share today.  Pairing the traditional Irish stout, Guinness, with chocolate is a popular combination….  especially perfect when baking for St. Patty’s Day!  From Chocolate Guinness Brownies to Black and Tan Cupcakes, these fluthered goodies were created by Sherri Meyers and her team at The Pastry Studio.  They might not have green sprinkles…. but these Irish treats will make your grown up friends smile!  Join me as we tip our hat to this festive and fun, Guinness & Chocolate Dessert Bar!

Guinness Dessert Bar for St. Patrick's Day

While this dessert table was originally created for a couples Book Club Party (the book was all about the history of Guinness), it would be perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration!  Chocolate Stout Brownies and Black & Tan Cupcakes are dusted with shimmering gold and lined up to create a plate of happiness!  Throw in some Guinness Double Chocolate Cake Pops and Guinness Biscotti… and you’ve found the end of the Guinness rainbow!

Sherri shared a few thoughts about the creation of this menu:

“We experimented with many different variations to make this dessert bar delicious and full bodied.  There was a lot of tasting going on in the studio, as we perfected these special desserts!”

    The Black & Tan were the English army that slaughtered the Irish. It’s very insulting to the Irish. They call the drink a half & half.
