A creamy, fluffy Guinness Chocolate Stout Fruit Dip is made with Guinness stout beer and cocoa. This adult treat makes a great appetizer or dessert and takes just a few minutes to whip together.
The month of March tends to have a lot of activities associated with it. There’s March Madness (my husband is one of those guys 🙂 ), St. Patrick’s Day, the start of the Spring season, and many times Easter is in the mix. Plus for me, it is my birthday month! Whew, that’s a lot of stuff going on. I also have a bit of a dilemma too when Easter and St Patrick’s day are so close together, which one do I decorate for? Or do I put out decorations for both at the same time? Ah, the serious stuff in life, lol.
Well, I seem to have developed a theme for boozy dessert dip recipes- last year, I posted this yummy Bailey’s Irish Creme Dip, in honor of the Irish holiday. Who says alcohol is just for drinking? I want to drink my alcohol and eat it too, lol. Guinness is an Irish stout with some caramel tones and is popular paired with chocolate in recipes. Guinness even has their own line of Chocolate Candy and Bars showcasing the combination.
Serve this Guinness Chocolate Stout Fruit Dip with some fresh, juicy fruit like strawberries and tell people there is beer in it, I guarantee it will be a hit at your St Patrick’s Day party. If eating fruit involved alcohol all the time, then maybe I’d actually get my daily serving amount on a regular basis 🙂 The calories form the beer won’t count in my diet either right?
Happy St. Patrick’s Day and remember to where your green so that you don’t get pinched!
