(NC) - Food is crucial to every great party and Guinness Draught has ideas to put together the perfect spread of drop-dead delicious eats. A pot of bubbling Guinness Brew Fondue (no cauldron required!) provides a savoury appetizer for your coven of friends.
Put grated cheese into your fondue dish or enamelled iron casserole dish and melt gently, over medium heat, stirring continuously. Add remaining ingredients and stir until the fondue thickens slightly. For dipping, use chunks of French bread or toast.

Guinness Black Bison Bites
The deep roasted barley character that Guinness fans love is well-matched to meats. These tapas-style burgers are moist with earthy flavours. Don't wimp out on the toppings, these minis need to be layered with attitude.
Soak bread with 3/4 c./180mL of Guinness Draught until beer is absorbed, about 5-10 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk remaining 1/4 c./60mL of Guinness Draught with garlic, Dijon, ketchup, salt and pepper.
Place all of the other ingredients in a large bowl, add the soaked bread and the Dijon mixture. Mix until ingredients are well incorporated. Shape into 12-16 small patties.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat, and grill patties, turning once, to desired doneness. Toast buns and garnish. Get creative with the cheese of your choice and colourful vegetables
Makes 12-16 Mini-Burgers Darkness Reigns Chocolate Cake
The pale frosting atop a dark dense cake replicates a perfectly poured pint of Guinness.
Preheat the oven to 180 C/355 F, and grease and line a 9 inch spring form tin.
Pour the Guinness into a large saucepan, and add the butter. Heat until the butter is melted and remove the saucepan from the heat. Whisk in the cocoa and sugar. In a separate bowl, beat the sour cream with the eggs and vanilla, then pour into the saucepan. Finally, beat in the flour and baking soda.
Pour the batter into the greased and lined tin, and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Leave to cool completely in the tin - it is quite a damp cake.
For the icing, beat the sugar and cream cheese together. Add the cream, and beat again until it's a spreadable consistency. Ice the top of the black cake until it resembles the frothy head of a pint of Guinness, garnish with chocolate drops to resemble bubbles.
