Surprising recipes is the motto of this blog. Guinness stout and pretzel cookies in one recipes is surprising, so I had to do this one.  I found it on an irish blog (of course), as a sweetie for St. Patricks day.

Ingredients for app. 20 truffles:

  • 1 bottle of Guinness stout (0,33l)
  • 225 gr. of semisweet chocolate
  • 75 gr. unsalted butter
  • 100 gr. pulverized pretzel cookies (with a food processor)
  • crushed pretzel cookies for rolling the truffles
  • some spare bottles of Guinness stout to drink


  • Read the recipe carefully while drinking a Guinness.
  • Put 0,5 dl of Guinness in a cup an set it aside to use later.
  • Pour the rest of the bottle in a saucepan and let it cook for about 20 minutes until reduced significantly.  Be careful at the beginning as it may foam a lot and apparently it is quite sticky to clean up when overboiling.
  • Chop the chocolate into pieces.
  • Put the chocolate with the 0,5 dl of Guinness in a pan and warm it up slowly until the chocolate starts to melt.
  • Add the butter and stir smoothy.
  • Add one tablespoon of the reduced Guinness.
  • Add the pulverized pretzels.
  • Stir smoothy until mixed well.
  • Put the mixture aside or in a refrigerator to get firm.
  • Crush the remaining pretzel cookies.
  • Roll the truffles with your hands and then roll them in the crushed pretzel cookies.
  • Put them aside and drink one more Guinness to enjoy your work.
