St. Patrick’s Day Guinness & Shamrock Gift Box

DIY Shamrock Box

The St. Patrick’s Day DIYs continue this time with these mouth-watering Guinness brownies and individual sized shamrock boxes that I whipped up to give as a small gift this St. Patrick’s Day.



  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup Guinness draft beer
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup dark cocoa
  • shamrock sprinkles
  • green mini cupcake cups


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a mini muffin pan with green cupcake cups.
  2. Mix together oil, Guinness, sugar, butter and eggs. Add flour and cocoa.
  3. Pour batter into cupcake cups.
  4. Bake for 12-17 minutes or until fully cooked.
  5. Add shamrock sprinkles to the top of the brownies

*note: If you are feeling extra lazy you can use a brownie mix box and replace the water with Guinness beer.  I used Guinness draft beer as I find it to have a more chocolate flavor notes, but if you want a stronger beer flavour chose the Guinness Stout.

To make the box print out the template on a sheet of green cardstock and cut out the template. After folding together the box, use a small amount of glue or double sided tape to help the box stay together.  Fill each box with 4 mini brownies and close the lid and tie a ribbon around the box.

Print out the shamrock gift topper on another colour of green cardstock and using a hole punch punch a hole into a shamrock. Slip the ribbon around through the hole and tie the ribbon to hold the shamrock on top of the box.
