The plight of a food blogger

Sometimes writing this blog requires a lot from me. I mean, how would you like it if you had to take a bite out of most things you cook before you can photograph it?

Or sip a cocktail at 11:00 a.m. because you have to check quality control?

Those days are when the job is tough. But I accept my plight, because it would be cruel of me to ask Christopher to sip a cocktail or bite into something just so I can photograph it.

I just do it myself, mostly.

Aren’t I nice not burdening Christopher?  ๐Ÿ™‚

Full disclosure: this is not my recipe.  When Christopher and I went on our Ireland trip, we toured the Guinness storehouse and they give out free recipe cards.  I grabbed them all in my hot little hands because I’m all for free and, oh yeah, the recipes looked awesome.

This truffle recipe was on one of the cards.  I also took a recipe card for a delish looking Guinness chocolate mousse.

How to make Guinness truffles

I’ve been making these truffles for a few years now and I have never been able to roll them in balls. I always fill little muffin cups with the truffle batter.


Get a medium saucepan, mini baking cups and a jelly roll pan.

Step one

I get a bottle of stout and one of the Guinness storehouse recipes. (A)

Step two

Measure 100 ml of Guinness and 400 ml of light cream (B)

Step three

Cut up the 60% cocoa bar, gather the chocolate chips and an orange. (C)

Step four

Add the cream and Guinness in the saucepan and turn the heat on medium. Bring to a slight boil.

Step five

Add the zest of one orange and the chocolate to the cream and stir until melted. (D)

Step six

Spoon the melted chocolate mixture into the baking cups.

You can sprinkle coconut flakes on as many chocolate truffles as you like.

Step seven

Place the pan in the refrigerator and to let the truffles set. It takes 1 – 2 hours.

I place the Guinness chocolate truffles on a few serving plates getting ready to serve them.

Mmmm. The flavor of orange in the chocolate is simply marvelous. Wait until you taste these delicious Guiness truffles.

I hope you enjoyed this recipe.

    Just finished sending a batch to relatives

    1. Britt! She will love these truffles!! They don’t really taste like Guinness though, just chocolatey, orange goodness!

  2. My husband always has Guinness in the house and I always have chocolate in the house – these are meant to be! I can’t wait to try them!

  3. Do you have a napkin? Because I need to stop my mouth watering ๐Ÿ™‚ These truffles are just too good to be true! Love this recipe.

  4. Lainey, I love to make chocolate candies. I am not really a lover of coconut so I think I will try a light dusting of powdered sugar on a few. Iโ€™ll let you know how that works. ????
