St. Patrick’s day is upon us. This recipe is great for the festivities. Guinness is a great stout beer with which to cook. The flavors of chocolate and beer really compliment each other in this pudding. Making pudding from scratch isn’t as complicated as some may make it seem. Get ready to enjoy some great flavors.
1 cup sugar
14.9 oz Guinness Stout beer
3 cups heavy whipping cream
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium bowl whisk together eggs and sugar. Add half of beer to mixture and stir. Set aside.
Next in a medium saucepan on medium heat, add heavy cream and remaining beer. Whisk occasionally until it comes to a simmer. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips, stir until chocolate melts. Now take the chocolate mixture and add to the eggs. Remember to keep rapidly whisking while doing this as you don’t want the eggs to curdle (You need to temper the eggs).
Pour mixture through a sieve to remove an clumps and to make the mixture creamier and smooth. Next place into serving dishes. Refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.
