Chocolate Guinness Whipped Cream

5 from 1 vote
Unbelievably creamy chocolate whipped cream with a subtle yet distinctive flavor of Guinness malt. Looks just like the foamy head on a pint!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 12 cupcakes' worth


  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • ½ cup dark chocolate cake mix, I recommend Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 4-5 tablespoons Guinness, remove any foam
  • 1-2 tablespoons powdered sugar, optional


  • Chill a large mixing bowl in the fridge or freezer for at least 15 minutes.
  • In your chilled bowl, combine mascarpone cheese and heavy cream and mix on a low setting until mostly combined.
  • Add cake mix and slowly increase speed to high and whip until stiff peaks form - it may take a little while, so be patient!
  • Add Guinness (make sure to remove the foam from the top) and whip until medium peaks form.
  • Taste and add powdered sugar 1 tablespoon at a time if you'd prefer it a bit sweeter, whipping after each addition. Enjoy!


Serving ideas:
  • Use it as a frosting to top your favorite cake or brownies
  • Dip fruit in it
  • Pipe it into a small dish as individual servings (like a mousse) topped with crushed pretzels or chopped Andes mints!
