St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, and it’s just around the corner!

Around this time last year, I shared my decadent Guinness and Chocolate Milkshakes with Jameson Cream and these lovely Guinness Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting Drizzle.

This year, I’m upping the ante with a sweet, simple recipe that you can make in no time flat.

The one caveat: you’re gonna need a friend to split this monster float with.

You start off with a base of salted caramel ice cream or gelato. Add a few scoops to your glass.

Once the ice cream is scooped, slooooooooowly pour in your Guinness. Stop every once in a while so the bubbles can dissipate, then continue until your glass is full and the Guinness bottle is empty.

Then once the float is good to go, top with your favorite hot fudge sauce. I recommend checking out Dude, Sweet Chocolate Break Up Potion Chocolate Sauce because it’s utterly delightful and pairs beautifully with the Guinness-salted caramel combination.

And then once everything is in place, you enjoy!

While this is definitely a decadent, heavy dessert, it’s quite tasty, and I think it would be perfect for any St. Patrick’s Day celebration that includes a freezer!

    Yum! We are getting into the Guinness recipes over here, too. I just made some burgers the other night, and I’m thinking about trying a shepherd’s pie, too. I can’t enjoy this drink this St. Patty’s Day, but my hubby will love it!

      You made BURGERS with GUINNESS?!?! Woah! That’s awesome! I hope that when you get a chance to try this drink next year, it’s as good to you as it was to us! I wasn’t able to try any of my St. Patrick’s Day drinks last year, either, and it’s been a whole lot of fun this year!
