Nothing beats a homemade chocolate float, except one made with Guinness. Whether you make it for St. Patrick’s Day or a random Friday, this will be a hit. Whip one up today!
I love chocolate. There, I said it. It’s out there. I’m a serious chocolate fanatic. Just ask Food Fanatic, I’m their resident Chocolate Fanatic. I contribute a couple of chocolate recipes to their site every month. It’s my favourite job in the whole wide world. No joke.
This one is to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. And Guinness. And Chocolate. Everyone celebrates booze on St. Paddy’s Day. It’s tradition. So this is me, celebrating booze in the most epic way. With CHOCOLATE! The only thing that beats chocolate or booze is combining them!
My Chocolate Guinness Float is the perfect way to combine chocolate and booze. It’s utterly delicious and easy to make. Your Irish friends will love you for making this for them. So will all your non-Irish friends. It’s a people pleaser no matter whether you’re truly Irish or not.
Technically I’m Irish. My family has some serious Irish and Scottish roots. Don’t let my last name fool you, that’s my husband’s family name, not mine. I’m technically a Mahaney. There you go, it’s out there in the world. We also have “Price” blood. Irish through and through.
We also have Doughty in our ancestry. My Mom was a Doughty. So we have a little English blood mixed in there too. Basically we’re mutts. Which is cool. I’m okay with that. Completely. I think it’s fun to have a little this and that in my heritage. I’m most proud of the Irish blood though.
I’d love to visit Ireland some day. It’s on my bucket list. My bucket list is LONG thought. So who knows when I’ll get there. I have some family who have visited Ireland and raved about it. I’ve spent so many hours staring longingly at their photos, wishing I had gone with them.
I’ll get there one day. I’m determined to check all those places and things off my bucket list. One destination at a time.
In the meantime I’ll sip this Chocolate Guinness Float. In fact, I may sip two.
I know right. It looks seriously sip-worthy! Chug-worthy too!
Can I get you a glass? Extra Guinness in yours?
SO MUCH FUN TAKING SPLASH PHOTOS!
Hope all these photos convince you that you need a float. NOW!
