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…

    1. The cookie batter is not super wet when I make it. But it is some what wet so yes, chill it. Definitely helps for thick, chewy cookies! Lmk if I can help with anything else 🙂

      1. The batter is almost like a very thick mousse, it holds together ok, but perhaps this batter will just make for some very moist and soft cookies. I’m going to let it chill overnight and then bake some of the batter tomorrow. Either way the results will be yummi and my friends will eat them all! 🙂

  1. Followed recipe; after cooking Guiness and sugar mixture 15-20 minutes (even added a couple more minutes) I still had more than 1/3 cup. Should mixture be cooked at a slightly higher heat (I followed a different recipe prior to this and my ‘syrupy’ mixture turned into hard candy). Was the reduction supposed to thicken some?

    1. The mixture does not turn syrupy its just less volume, it’s reduced but not all the way to a syrup or a thicker texture. Hope this helps. Let me know how they turn out! XO
