Boozy breakfast at its finest – Guinness Chocolate Donuts with Baileys Icing are the perfect treat for St. Patrick’s Day brunch!
Two Guinness posts in a row…it must mean that St. Patrick’s Day is almost here! Or that Guinness was on sale at the market. Or both 🙂 TheBetterHalf and I are both Irish and we went to Notre Dame, so we are big fans of St. Patrick’s Day. What’s not to love about a holiday that allows you to have both Guinness and Baileys for breakfast?
These Guinness Chocolate Donuts are similar to the donuts I made last year, but I changed up the icing to a Baileys chocolate ganache icing. It is SO good!!
So I hope you don’t think it is a cop out to use the exact same donut base recipe that I used before…it just worked so well!! It is light and fluffy, but still substantial enough to handle the icing. The Guinness complements the chocolate in the donut and gives it a great depth of flavor.
And then, the Baileys icing!! I made a simple chocolate ganache and stirred in some Baileys – it is SO good. Baileys and chocolate are a match made in heaven. It is definitely alcoholic though, so if you are not drinking then you should avoid this icing!
These Guinness chocolate donuts are a really fun breakfast to make for St. Patrick’s Day!
