With St. Patrick’s Day coming up I have been doing some cooking with Irish booze. Last weekend I made these delicious Guinness Chocolate Chip Cookies!
The booze in these cookies is cooked for about 15 minutes with sugar to make a thick Guinness syrup, which adds just a hit of richness and flavor to the cookies. If you don’t know what the secret ingredient is you would never guess that is is Guinness.
I used a combination of white chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips for an extra chocolatey taste. My husband and kids loved these cookies. They are a perfect treat for St. Patrick’s Day, and make a nice twist on traditional chocolate chip cookies.
And if you are looking for more ideas for cooking with Guinness try these Guinness brownies or Guinness bread! Guinness adds a burst of flavor to a bunch of tasty recipes.

What a wonderful cookie for St. Patrick’s Day. And I think it’s great they are chocolate too.
These sound amazing and perfect for my husband. Thank you for sharing!
Never tried stout in a cookie but it would go nicely with the chocolate for sure. Another great cookie for St. Patrick’s Day!!
I LOVE the idea of a guinness syrup! Which is funny because I really dislike straight guinness but I am totally aware of the magic it makes when cooking and baking with it. Yum. I’m so glad you joined us!
Mmmm. Great idea to use both the dark and white chocolates, Anne. Your cookie truly combines the best of the dessert world into one cookie =)
What a fun secret ingredient for St Patrick’s Day! I bet these cookies disappeared quickly!
That is the perfect beer to make perfect cookies.
How perfect for St. Patrick’s day!! I love that they have both white and dark chocolate chips. And Guinness!
I am not sure I would have been able to get the guinness into the cookies. I LOVE that stuff and would have just drank it. Great idea for cookies though because guinness is great in cookies.
Starting with Guinness syrup, I was hooked! Stout and chocolate are an awesome combination and your cookies look wonderfully dark and rich. Welcome to Creative Cookie Exchange, Anne!

I’m not a fan of drinking Guinness, but I do like cooking/baking with it. I like the idea of Guinness syrup! Your cookies are perfect for St. Pat’s and the Drunken Cookie theme. Nice job!
Thanks for sharing with See Ya in the Gumbo this week!
I just tried these, using a chocolate peanut butter porter! It worked out really well but I did end up having to chill the dough for about an hour. Otherwise they spread. The taste, however, was terrific!
