  • 2 cups (approx 10 oz) of good quality chocolate chopped
  • 1/4 cup Guinness
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream

In a bowl over simmering water, put the chocolate, beer and cream.  Heat until all melted over medium  heat.

Remove from heat and let sit at room temp to cool.  Then refrigerate 4+ hours until set.

Scoop out small amounts to make 1″ balls.  Put on a cookie sheet and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

In the meantime, melt 10-12 ounces of good semisweet chocolate (you can add 1-2 tbsps of good shortening if you wish to thin it a bit)

Dip each ball into the chocolate to coat and let set.  Before the chocolate sets, you can top each ball with a decoration, such as edible glitter, flaked sea salt, crushed  pretzels, etc.
