Mini Guinness Chocolate Floats

March 11, 2017



I love a full bodied stout. I love coffee. I love chocolate. These mini floats combine all those flavors in one or two tasty sips. The Guinness, with its rich, creamy notes, is the perfect partner for chocolate ice cream. Boozy whipped cream is a terrific topper. Take a look at additional ideas for St. Pats. Corned beef and Cabbage egg rolls. Flatbread. Corned beef and Guinness caramelized onions grilled cheese. St. Paddy’s Day stuffed potatoes.
