One of my best friends REALLY loves Guinness. I mean, she says she drinks it like chocolate milk. Me? I don’t get the appeal…I don’t care for it that much. I will drink it and like it, but I am not one of those people who becomes upset if it’s not on draft at the bar when we walk in. The lovely thing about Guinness though, is that it can be used in all sorts of recipes because it has that hint of sweetness to it! Take this Chocolate Guinness Frosted Cupcakes Recipe that my friend Kari came up with for Saint Patrick’s Day as an example.

Pure heavenly bliss!

Ingredients

  • 12 chocolate cupcakes, baked and cooled completely
  • 1 cup, Guiness beer
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup marshmallow cream
  • 3/4 cup prepared white frosting
  • St. Patrick’s Day Sprinkles

Directions:

In a small saucepan, add beer and brown sugar. Stir well. Cook on medium-low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently. You want to reduce your mixture to a syrup like consistency. It will be runny. Remove from heat and let set for five minutes. The mixture should be almost like a molasses.

In a mixing bowl, add marshmallow cream and frosting. Pour in syrup. Beat until combined well.

Place frosting into a piping bag and pipe onto cupcakes. Then top them with sprinkles!
