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.

The sugar and chocolate get sifted into the Guinness in a medium-size saucepan.

We bring this to just below a simmer to make sure all the sugar is dissolved.

While that's happening add some ice to your water to make sure it’s super cold (this cuts back the cool down time) and some vanilla extract to boost the chocolate just a little more.

Once the sugar is dissolved, mix that mixture with the ice water until the ice melts. Then finish cooling it down in the fridge.

After it’s completely cooled, throw it in the ice cream maker for 30 minutes.

BOOM. Sorbet.

Serve it up in a nice dish.

Top with some whipped cream and a few chocolate shavings if you're feeling fancy!
