I made us popsicles with beer and brownies.
Can I get a “hallelujah” from the audience, please? Because I think these boozy frozen treats definitely deserve some collective praise. They are just that freaking awesome.
I dreamed these babies up a couple of weeks ago when I was brainstorming recipe ideas for St. Patrick’s Day. And I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve eaten almost every single one of them by myself. And sometimes, I even dip them in a pint of cold stout beer before consuming them. I highly recommend you try that out too. You won’t be sorry.
If you wanted to shout out “hallelujah” again at this point, I wouldn’t blame you. Go right ahead. I’ll wait…
These Guinness Popsicles with Irish Cream Soaked Brownies aren’t overly sweet. And they definitely taste like beer. Which is a very good thing, in my humble opinion. There are way too many recipes out there that contain alcohol that you can’t even detect in the final product. I want my beer-sicles to taste like beer, damn it! I don’t think that’s too much to ask.
For the brownies, just make up a batch of whatever your go-to recipe is. Or if you’re not feeling it, you could even buy a couple of brownies from your favorite bakery and use those instead. I won’t tell.
Make sure to stock up your freezer with these Guinness Popsicles with Irish Cream Soaked Brownies before St. Patrick’s Day rolls around! And grab a couple of extra beers while you’re at it. For dipping, of course.
I’m just here to make sure we can all enjoy chocolate and beer at breakfast time.
It’s a tough job. But somebody’s got to do it.
These Double Chocolate Guinness Muffins are wonderfully soft and delicious. And while they don’t taste strongly of Guinness, they do taste strongly of chocolate. And that’s pretty darn cool. I dare you to try and eat just one. I didn’t stop until two. OK, three. Possibly four. Don’t judge me!
Truth be told, these babies are kind of teeter tottering on cupcake status. But don’t tell anyone. Let’s keep some secrets between us. It’s way more fun that way.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of having brunch with Carrie and Nicole, a couple other New England-based food bloggers. The thing I like so much about brunch is that you can usually get away with eating foods that you would never normally consider acceptable at breakfast time. Like duck fat french fries. And champagne. Yeah, we had both of those things. And also perhaps chocolate and beer disguised as a muffin. Just saying.
