Guinness Ice Cream Float

Obviously, this is a super easy dessert recipe to be made only if you are certain that your guests like coffee, chocolate, and Guinness. There are strong flavors in this dessert; it is not sweet, and that is why I like it! The Taza chocolate sauce is rich and bitter, perfect for drizzling into a float, and I am sure even better when blended into a milkshake. As for proportions, I used about two and a half small scoops of ice cream to a bottle of Guinness in each glass, then drizzled in maybe a teaspoon of chocolate sauce. I didn’t want any one flavor to overwhelm here, and it ended up being perfect.

It’s good to remember that this is an alcoholic beverage. Once the coffee ice cream started to melt into the Guinness, it was easy to knock it back like it ain’t no thing, but then I got a little woozy in a good way. Winking smile 

I love the weekend, especially long weekends, and especially after a week where I was blessed with lots of new and fun work prospects. I hope your weekend is going along just as well!
