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.
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.

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.
Dark Chocolate Guinness No Bake Cookies are a rich, delicious, and easy dessert for St. Patrick's Day that's made with Irish stout.
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup Guinness
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups minute oats
- 1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
- 1 package instant chocolate pudding mix (3.4 oz)
Add butter, sugar, and Guinness to a large pot and bring to a boil. Keep on a rolling boil for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients, once fully combined, plop large spoonfuls onto wax paper and let set for about an hour.
It's very important to have a rolling boil for 2 minutes, if you undercook then your cookies won't harden and if you overcook then your cookies will turn out dry and crumbly.
Cookies will have a hard time setting if it's raining or humid.
If mixture seems dry right off the bat, add a little more Guinness, if it seems soupy, add some more oats. This recipe should slightly spread, but not run, when plopped on the parchment paper.
If you have a hard time getting cookies to set, place them in the fridge or freezer to help them along.
Wrap individually if transporting to share so that cookies to not soften and stick to each other.
