How to make a Guinness chocolate cheesecake

When Courtney Cox announced her engagement to Irish musician Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol, her Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston celebrated by giving her a Guinness chocolate cheese cake at her bachelorette party.

It sounded great and the perfect dessert for a sweet toothed Irish person. Like with the Bailey’s Irish cream cheesecake, the Guinness provides a unique take on the classic dish.
