More About This Recipe

  • A rich stout sorbet is a simple yet decadent dessert. Grab a spoon and dig in! Guinness is a dark beer that most people either love or hate. I happen to be in the latter camp, BUT I love adding it to chocolate desserts. Sounds wrong but it’s oh, so right! The Guinness makes the chocolate flavor come out a little more and just kind of rounds out the dessert. Usually I throw it into a cake, but this time around it’s going into a sorbet. There are just a few ingredients and it comes together in a snap: Sugar, cocoa powder, Guinness (obvs) and water. Serve it up in a nice dish. Top with some whipped cream and a few chocolate shavings if you're feeling fancy!
