Soda floats are out and beer floats are in!


  • 40g Co-op Fairtrade milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 tbsp Co-op semi-skimmed milk
  • 500ml bottle golden ale - we recommend Harvest Gold from Ferry Ales Brewery
  • 2 scoops Co-op Irresistible Venezuelan chocolate ice cream
  • 1 Co-op digestive biscuit, broken into small pieces


  1. Put the chocolate, golden syrup and milk in a small, non-metallic bowl and microwave for 30-45 seconds, or until the chocolate has melted, stirring halfway.
  2. Beat with a spoon until smooth and glossy, then set aside to cool fully.
  3. Drizzle some of the sauce on the inside of two pint glasses.
  4. Half-fill each with golden ale, add a scoop of ice cream and top up with more of the ale.
  5. Drizzle over the remaining chocolate sauce and sprinkle with the biscuit to serve.
