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.
And there is no need to worry that the stout may take away from the tastiness of the cheesecake – there is plenty of chocolate mixed in with it!
