Guinness Float

Guinness Float 001

I know, I know, Guinness 2 posts in a row.

I had to, my Irish heritage makes me do it around St. Patricks Day.

Guinness Float

I imagine if you are not a Guinness fan, you will absolutely NOT like these.
You can just lick the caramel off the mug.

But, if you Lurve some deep dark Guinness Stout, you will love these.

I used vanilla ice cream in one and chocolate ice cream in the other mug.

I’m not sure which one I liked better, but the homemade whipped cream and the caramel drizzle, put them over the top.

So if you want to get tipsy and have dessert at the same time, these have your name written all over them.

That’s a good time.

Not much of a recipe but her you go incase you want to print it out.

    Every year I have to have my pint of Guinness on St. Patrick’s Day, however, none of my friends like it. Maybe a little ice cream and caramel sauce to change their mind? If not more for me and I am totally ok with that!
