Recipe: Stout Truffles Rolled in Pretzels or Bacon

Written by


St. Patrick’s Day is this Sunday, March 17th. How will you be celebrating? How about a Guinness-spiked chocolate truffle? Did I mention it’s rolled in crushed pretzels? Or candied bacon?

This weekend on the show “Beeroness” Jackie Dodd discusses baking with beer. Stout, it seems, is the most common pairing for chocolate and with the Irish holiday on the horizon, why not create a Guinness-spiked dessert? That’s exactly what the Beeroness does with her Stout Truffles Rolled in Pretzels or Bacon. If you’re a craft beer junkie (who isn’t?!) Jackie suggests substituting North Coast Brewing’s Old Rasputin Imperial Stout in lieu of Guinness.

You can find more beer soaked recipes (Smoky Chocolate Porter Ice Cream with Beer Candied Bacon anyone???) on Jackie’s blog. Keep an eye out for her cookbook which is due out this Fall. Hear Evan’s conversation with Jackie below and keep reading for Jackie’s recipe for Stout Truffles…
