Many people consider Guinness to be one of Ireland’s greatest gifts to the world and if you aren’t one of those people then this recipe will most certainly change your mind.
Not only does this recipe use Guinness in the chocolate pudding but it also uses Guinness to make a syrup that is combined with the whipped cream which is placed on top of the pudding. This makes the whole dessert look like a deliciously ice cold glass of the famous Irish stout. Your guests will be impressed.
