Dark Chocolate Guinness No Bake Cookies are a rich, delicious, and easy dessert for St. Patrick’s Day that’s made with Irish stout.
These Guinness No Bake Cookies are an easy and rich treat that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day and beyond. They’re a fun twist on classic No Bake Cookies!
My biggest regret from our trip to Ireland almost two years ago, other than not having more time there, is not visiting the Guinness (and Jameson) brewery/distillery.
Which, of course, was because we didn’t have enough time.
As much as I love my Irish whiskey and a good stout, the draw of Giant’s Causeway and the Cliffs of Moher won out. Just go look at the pictures, can you really blame me?
But I’m headed back to Ireland in the fall and I’m hoping I can convince my travel companions that both places are a must visit while we’re there.
Shouldn’t be too hard, right???
You know how everyone talks about how Europeans drink warm beer?
Well, it’s not really warm, it’s actually room temperature and that’s actually the only way I can drink beer.
So I encourage you to maybe try a room temperature pint of Guinness to go with these deliciously rich Dark Chocolate Guinness No Bake Cookies.
And you guys know that I love No Bake Cookies, my No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies are a classic, and my Irish Cream No Bake Cookies are also a popular recipe this time of year.
So making these Dark Chocolate Guinness No Bake Cookies seemed like a must as we head into a week of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
These Dark Chocolate Guinness No Bake Cookies are a delicious mix of butter, sugar, stout, oatmeal, pudding mix, cocoa, and more.
They’re super easy to make and the results are a delicious, chocolatey, no-bake dessert!
These are a soft and chewy cookie recipe to begin with and because of this, it’s very important that these cookies are not made on days when there’s a lot of humidity or rain because the cookies will never set.
This is a good rule of thumb to follow for any no bake cookie recipe, but these ones especially.

Hi, I made these tonight for a Saint Patrick’s Day party. I am not very good at making sweets but thought..”No Bake” give it a go!
I tripled the recipe but didn’t have quite enough oats so I added chopped walnuts..plus about a cup of crushed walnuts to thicken it up .. they are setting now..I’m so nervous ?
I hope I didn’t ruin the recipe… If they come out good I’ll let you know!?

Those look delicious – have to try that some time, though I’m not exactly used to putting instant pudding mix into baking recipes!
Can I ask what the music is in the video? I really like it.
Hi Lynna, the pudding in the recipe helps create the adhesive that peanut butter usually creates in traditional no bake cookies.
It’s just a stock Irish tune, not something you can find and listen to I don’t think.
