guinness-pudding-beauty-shot-march-2016

Did you know that nearly 122 million or 39% of the US population say they celebrate St. Patrick's Day? At least one day a year, we're all Irish, or at least Irish at heart. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.

Are you looking for a special dessert to serve on March 17th? How about dark chocolate Guinness Pudding? It's a fun treat with a short ingredient list that you can cook in less than an hour.

If you're not familiar Guinness beer, it's a dark Irish beer with notes of roasted coffee. The perfect compliment to the rich deep taste of dark chocolate. If you serve the pudding in a glass it mimics the look of the Guinness beer with the frothy, creamy head.

Ingredients

4 Large Egg Yolks
1/2 Cup + 3 Tablespoons Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Guinness Stout
1 3/4 Cups Heavy Cream
4 Ounces High quality bittersweet (60% + Cocao) chocolate, if bar finely chopped. Chips fine too.

Directions

Guinness Pudding

  1. In large nonreactive mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks and 1/2 cup sugar.
  2. Open can of Guinness and slowly pour into 4-cup measuring cup, pouring down side of cup to reduce foaming. Pour 1/2 cup of Guinness into heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add 1 1/4 cups cream and whisk to combine. Set over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until bubbles just begin to form at edges. Remove from heat, add chocolate and whisk until smooth.
  3. Slowly pour hot chocolate mixture into eggs, whisking constantly to prevent curdling. Return mixture to saucepan and set over moderately low heat.
  4. Cook another 7 minutes, whisking constantly. The consistency of the mixture will appear thin but it will thicken up as it cools . Divide pudding among glasses, leaving at least 1 inch of space at top of each. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled and set.

Guinness Topping

  1. Meanwhile, pour 1 cup of Guinness into small saucepan and bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to moderately low and simmer, uncovered, until reduced to 1 tablespoon, about 20 minutes. Pour syrup into small bowl and let cool.
  2. Beat remaining cream and 3 tbsp. sugar until soft peaks form. Add 1 tsp. (or more to your liking) of the Guinness syrup and beat until combined. Divide cream among 4-6 glasses of pudding and serve.
