Guinness Hot Chocolate

What is better than hot chocolate on a chilly day? Hot chocolate with Guinness.

This delicious cup of cocoa is made with real melted chocolate and a reduced bottle of Guinness to give it a subtle roasted stout flavor. Finish it off with a dash of nutmeg and you've got a drink that is enough to send Buddy the Elf into cocoa rehab.

  • 1 (12-ounce) bottle Guinness
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • A pinch of kosher salt
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate chips  (2.5 teaspoons of chips = 1 ounce of chocolate)
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
  • A dash of nutmeg

  1. 1. Pour the Guinness into a medium saucepan and cook it over a medium-high heat for 10 minutes. This will reduce the Guinness to 1/2 cup of concentrated syrup. 
  2. In a medium saucepan, mix cocoa, sugar, salt, milk, bittersweet chocolate, and milk chocolate chips over medium heat. Stir constantly until chocolate is melted. Whisk mixture until fully mixed.
  3. Add Guinness and whisk until frothy. 
  4. Pour into cups. Top with marshmallows, tiny chocolate chips, a dash of nutmeg, and serve to guests!
