I’m not Irish, but I do reside in the Boston region, where St. Patrick’s Day is the largest celebration of the year.

I once went to the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Southie when I was younger, and I will never attend again. It was entertaining, amusing, chilly, liquor-fueled, loud, and green, and there were a lot of bagpipes.

It’s one of those things you have to do once in your life, like New Year’s Eve in Times Square. So I did it, and I’m not going to do it again.

Instead, I’ll be snuggled up to a warm fire with a cup of Irish coffee topped with my ridiculously delicious chocolate Guinness whipped cream.

Key Ingredients

  • sour cream This is the foundation for our whipped cream. Whipping cream may also be used.
  • Mascarpone is a kind of cheese. Mascarpone cheese, my favorite ingredient for whipped cream and icing, gives richness and stability without being too sweet.
  • Cake mix in dark chocolate Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Cake Mix is my favorite, but any dark chocolate cake mix would do.
  • Guinness Remove any froth since you just want the dry stout for the recipe. And then reserve the remainder of the drink for yourself!
  • granulated sugar This is optional, and I normally leave it out since I like foods that are less sweet.
