|St. Patrick's Day Feet From left: Baby Baby, Firstborn, Little Man|
Guinness cupcakes, corned beef and cabbage, Irish coffee, Bailey's brownies: Are you tired of hearing about St. Patrick's Day yet? Me neither, which is exactly why I have no shame posting about the holiday a whole day late.
I was dying to serve a Guinness dessert to the fam last week. (We were lucky enough to spend spring break with my momma, stepdaddy, Big Little Brother and his fab gf.) Naturally that meant I pored over Pinterest during my wee-hour pumping sessions until I found something that A) sounded delicious and B) used Guinness.
It was thick and syrupy, after, oh, an hour or so.
And it tasted great over chocolate ice cream.
Actually, it probably tasted better over chocolate ice cream than vanilla.
But if you ask the husband, he'd tell you to save the time and just pour molasses over your dessert. The sauce was delicious, and I thought it made for a nice end to our St. Patrick's Day dinner, which we ate two days early, but it was a bit time-consuming. And I'd probably have enjoyed the Guinness more by itself or with ice cream as a float.
Good thing there's always next year.
