Chocolate Stout Ice Cream Recipe

Every year we try something new for St. Patrick’s Day.  As I mentioned yesterday, we have done green beer and Guinness floats in the past.  I cannot remember what else we have done, but I’m pretty sure it involved other types of beer! :) This year, however, we wanted to go on the sweeter side. But you can’t forget the beer! (Are you sensing a theme here?)

Looks delicious!


Chocolate Stout Ice Cream

adapted from We Are Not Martha

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 12 oz. stout (minus one sip — for tasting purposes!)

Whisk together eggs for a few minutes.  Then slowly whisk in the sugars and cocoa powder, followed by the milk, cream, and stout.  Chill for five plus hours before freezing in your ice cream maker (I chilled overnight before churning).

The original recipe didn’t get very hard, but mine seemed as hard as any homemade ice cream that I make.  Matthew and I both loved this ice cream.  It is definitely different than anything we have had before — like chocolate with a stout aftertaste.

Have you ever made ice cream with alcohol?

  1. I’ve never tried ice cream with alcohol, do you have an actually Ice Cream maker, or just the add on for the mixer like Emily?

  2. I have the cuisinart ice cream maker, but I believe that the add on is even better — one less appliance in the home!

  3. I just made this for our party tonight and it tastes wonderful! I just that my husband doesn’t eat it all before the party!
