St. Patrick's Day is only days away. One of my favorite holidays of the whole year. I have a few "grown up" treat recipes to share with you this week. I feel like there are so many holiday treats posted for kids, and what parent couldn't use a decadent adult treat at the end of the day? A while ago I shared a delicious Baked Chocolate Guinness Donut recipe with Baileys Glaze, and today I want to share a recipe with you for Guinness Cake Pops. Not only are these delicious, but they are absolutely adorable too, perfect for parties or events!

6. Now add the butter-Guinness to the sour cream and using a hand mixer mix until fully combined about 1-2 minutes on med. speed . You will now begin to add the flour mix and beat until just combined. Use a rubber spatula, lightly fold the batter to make sure there are no pockets of flour.
