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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  5. 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!
