Put the kids to bed and break out these adult beverage–spiked frozen treats, ice cream sandwiches made from chocolate brownies made with chocolate stout beer. It’s up to you to decide how you want to fill them: caramel ice cream, vanilla bean, even—if you want to get extra beery—David Lebovitz’s Guinness–milk chocolate ice cream. Go a little crazy.
What to buy: You want a chocolate stout with a delicious roasted barley flavor and a chocolate aroma that doesn’t overwhelm. We like Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout.
