Guinness Chocolate Cookies
DAMMMMMMMN these cookies are for chocolate lovaaahhs! So if you don’t love chocolate get the HELLLL OUT! I’m only joking 😉 but go check out these cookies or something. But at least make these for St. Patricks Day!
Anyways back to these cookies. Well, first of all, they have Guinness in them. So of course they win right off the bat, cookies and booze! And for those of you who have never baked with Guinness before it doesn’t make the baked good taste like Guinness it just really intensifies the chocolate flavor. It’s like the real deal for chocolate lovers. AKA me!
But because I am not a dark chocolate lover, I stick to milk most of the time, I had to through some milk chocolate chunks in there too. I mean come on look at that chocolate meltiness going up in that cookie. It’s outrageously finger lickin good.
So there is cocoa powder, dark chocolate chips and milk chocolate chunks AND reduced Guinness so the chocolateness is redic. You chill this dough but hey I almost like dough that you chill better because who doesn’t just love taking dough straight out of the fridge to bake? That’s why the store bought dough is the best! But this is better none of that junk you cannot pronounce.
I have a feeling these cookies would be fantastic with a scoop of ice cream, not speaking from experience or anything. On that note I might need to make these again for Paddy’s…
