We all know St. Patrick’s Day is about wearing green and eating corned beef, but don’t forget the best part—dessert and even better, dessert with booze.

1. Guinness Chocolate Cookies
If you’re a little nervous at first about including the flavor of some Irish booze in your dessert, start off with a chocolate lover’s dream; Guinness Chocolate Cookies. The Guinness only intensifies the chocolate taste in a BIG way. Get the recipe here.
These little delights include Guinness AND Bailey’s. They also look festive with a hint of green between the two cakes. Guinness in the cake and Bailey’s in the frosting—Yum! Get the recipe here.
3. Baked Guinness Donuts with Irish Cream Glaze
These tasty treats let you eat them for breakfast or dessert—or both! The Guinness is used to make them nice and fluffy while the Irish Cream adds a topping so delicious, you may lick the bowl clean before actually frosting them! Get the recipe here.
4. Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes
Don’t be intimidated by the title—unlike their drink counterpart you will want to enjoy these slowly over and over again. They are not your ordinary cupcakes in that they include three different boozes-Guinness, Irish Whiskey, AND Bailey’s. Together they form a mouth-watering concoction of gooey and chocolaty deliciousness. Get the recipe here.

7. Guinness Chocolate Cake
I thought it would be best to round up the list with a super chocolaty and classic St. Patrick’s Day dessert. The dark stout beer makes this cake the most dense and fudgy cake you have ever had. You can also top it with a salted caramel glaze that will be guaranteed to be requested at every St. Patrick’s Day in the future. Get the recipe here.
