With St. Patrick’s Day comes a slew of festive recipes. Some people celebrate with traditional Irish dishes. Some take advantage of this opportunity to whip up recipes made with Irish beers and liqueurs. And then there are some who simply like to dye everything green. We’re partial to all of these methods of celebration, especially when it comes to dessert. Here are five St. Patrick’s Day themed sweets to get you started!
Guinness Cupcakes: These cupcakes combine one of St. Patrick’s Day’s most beloved flavor combinations: chocolate and stout beer. Not only that, they’re also topped with an Irish cream frosting and a chocolate coin.
Chocolate Irish Cream Cake: Another take on the chocolate and Irish liqueur combo, this Chocolate Irish Cream Cake is moist, rich, and finished with an Irish cream glaze. What more could you want from a St. Patrick’s Day cake?
St. Patrick’s Day Crispy Treats: Try this fun and festive spin on classic crispy treats! These green bites are topped with melted chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth.
St. Paddy’s Mint and Fudge Bars: This is not your average fudge. These bars have a chocolate cookie crust, a green mint-flavored layer of fudge, and a chocolate layer of fudge on top of that!
Skinny Grasshopper Pie: This no-bake pie comes together easily and is a great option if you’re looking for a lighter dessert. It has a subtle mint flavor, and you can make it as vibrantly green as you want.
