Guinness Stout Chocolate Syrup is a delicious topping for pancakes, ice cream and desserts! We enjoyed ours on homemade applesauce pancakes over the weekend and it’s SO darn good. Easy to make too, which is a plus. Just remember to stir well before each use. This syrup will thicken up considerably once chilled in the refrigerator.

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup sugar

1 Tablespoon molasses

1 oz. unsweetened chocolate

1 (14.9 oz) can Guinness Stout

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix the corn syrup, sugar and molasses over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Add the chocolate and stir constantly until melted. Add the stout and cinnamon and stir frequently, using a wire whisk, while the syrup simmers and thickens (this will take about 20 minutes.) Watch closely so the syrup doesn’t burn. Cool for five minutes and transfer to a heat-safe container (I like using my canning jars for this.)

This will thicken as it cools. It’sĀ  wonderful warm, at room temperature or cold.

      Hi Marilyn! I don’t think this would go good with meat. It’s a dessert/pancake syrup. šŸ™‚
