Everyone is Irish on St Patricks Day! Why not add some decadence to the celebration? Here’s the perfect combo of Guinness and Chocolate!!
8 large egg yolks
1 cup sugar
One 14.9-ounce can Guinness Draught
3 cups heavy cream
7 ounces high-quality milk chocolate, finely chopped (dark works well also)
4 Large Beer Mugs
In large nonreactive mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar.
Open can of Guinness and slowly pour into 4-cup measuring cup, pouring down side of cup to reduce foaming. Pour half of Guinness (about 7/8 cup) into heavy-bottomed 3-quart saucepan. Add 2 1/4 cups cream and whisk to combine. Set over medium heat and heat, whisking occasionally, until bubbles just begin to form at edges. Remove from heat, add chocolate, and whisk until smooth.
Slowly pour hot chocolate mixture into eggs, whisking constantly to prevent curdling. Return mixture to saucepan and set over moderately low heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens and coats back of spoon, about 15 minutes. (Pudding will look separated.) Pour into blender and blend on high for 1 minute. Divide pudding among glasses, leaving at least 1 inch of space at top of each. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled and set.
Meanwhile, pour remaining Guinness into small saucepan and bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to moderately low and simmer, uncovered, until reduced to 1 tablespoon, about 20 minutes. Pour syrup into small bowl and let cool.
Beat remaining cream until soft peaks form. Add Guinness syrup and beat until combined. Divide cream among 4 glasses of pudding and serve

Doesn’t everyone have a favorite Sandwich Joint? Yea there’s a Subway every where you turn but, sometimes you just want that deli quality Sammie! Seems everything local has fallen to the falling economy and closed up. Super Submarine in Hammond is not exactly close. Actually it is the next state over. Ok we do live on the border lol The place has been under same ownership since the 70′s! Not too many places can claim that any longer! Family run little sandwich shop 7010 Kennedy Ave in Hammond, In has the best sandwiches you can drool over! The decor is not exactly high end, but the prices are unbelieveable for the amount of meat they pile on !!! Hubby and daughter as fav is the beef! Made on location! Sliced paper thin piled high topped with some peppers and pickles, side of au jus. Can you say YUM?!?! Today I went with the Rueben. Amazing! Have a real good appetite because half of it is going to fill you up! My son had the meatball He has to have excess sauce on his and with out even asking that’s the way it’s served.
Super Submarine is a dying breed. Family type little shop with food that is out of this world. Get a chance stop in !! You will be so happy you did
