List Rules Which boozy beer dessert is the most delicious?

Ahhh beer... the drink you love so much you wish you could have it with every meal. Even dessert! Well now you can! When chosen correctly, beer and sweets make a perfect food pairing. These beer dessert recipes take that concept one step further and actually incorporate the beer into recipes for the best ale-centric and brew-tastic desserts ever! 

With the amount of new microbrew varieties out there, chances are you won't have an issue tracking down the right beer to combine with your fave dessert. Just think of all the beer flavors that already exist: chocolate stout, pumpkin ale, oatmeal stout. Now just imagine those in chocolate cake, pumpkin cupcakes, and vanilla sugar cookies! 

A rule of thumb when cooking with beer is that thick, darker beers are good for heavier desserts like pies and cakes or mousse. And lighter beers are great for light desserts like ice cream. But as you'll see from these recipes, there are no real rules! Just let your imagination run wild.

So grab your favorite brew and scroll through our list of beer recipes. Vote up the boozy beer dessert you think is the most delicious! Cheers!
