Happy St. Patrick's Day! Guinness Pot Au Creme - Saint Patrick's Day Dessert

Happy Sant Patrick's Day! Looking for a delicious dessert for your corned beef and cabbage boiled dinner? Look no further than these delicious Guinness Pot Au Cremes!

These are thick, creamy, dreamy little puddings. I topped them with a dollop of Bailey's whipped cream for an extra boozy punch. My puddings didn't set as much as I wanted them to, but they were still delicious.

I love the stupid craziness that is St. Patrick's Day, and this is the first year I know for sure my family IS indeed Irish! These freckles and curly hair came from somewhere, hurrah! When I lived in Boston I somehow had to work every single year, so I never REALLY got to participate in the festivities. Sad, I would have loved to experience it in Boston.

This year will probably be spent inside, due to recent events, but who knows, maybe we'll experience a Saint Paddy's Day miracle! Either way, I'll be enjoying these.

What are your St. Paddy's Day plans?

Guinness Pot de Creme

1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup Guinness
2 cups (12oz) semisweet chocolate chips
4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Bailey's Whipped Cream
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tbs Bailey's

Combine heavy cream, Guinness, and vanilla in a medium saucepan over low heat and let simmer just barely. Remove from heat.

In a food processor, combine the chocolate chips, eggs, and salt and blend for 1 minute until the chocolate is completely chopped. Pour in the Guinness mixture, and blend again until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is thick.

Divide mixture into ramekins (it made 4 large for me), cover with plastic wrap, and place in refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours and up to 2 days.

Before serving, prepare whipped cream: Whip in a hand mixer until cream is thick, fold in Bailey's and whip until desired texture is reached. Serve pots cold with dollop of cream on top.
