Chocolate Stout Ice Cream Float

Ice cream + chocolate + beer? Yes, please! Be sure to use high-quality ice cream and chocolate. We made ours with ingredients from local SF makers; vanilla ice cream from Mr. and Mrs. Miscellanous and Nitro Stout from Harmonic Brewing. Feel free to use your favorite local ingredients!

Yields: About 2 serving    Time: About .5hrs


    • 5.5 oz 70% dark chocolate (we used Valrhona's Guanaja 70%)
    • 10 oz Recchiuti Burnt Caramel Sauce
    • 2 oz heavy cream
    • Your favorite stout
    • Your favorite ice cream


          1. Melt chocolate in the microwave until it's about 104 F and melted. If you don't have a thermometer, heat the chocolate in slow increments and stir until melted and smooth.

          2. In a separate bowl, add the Burnt Caramel Sauce and heavy cream together and heat in the microwave to about 104 F. It will have a smooth and creamy texture.

          3. Combine melted chocolate and caramel mixture and blend with an immersion blender. Add 2 oz of stout to the mixture and blend.

          4. Scoop 2 or 3 scoops of ice cream into a tall glass and pour chocolate mixture over ice cream. Top your glass off with more stout and enjoy!
