17 St Patricks Day Desserts

Sometimes I wish I could be the mom who does all the great crafts with my kids and bakes all the fun meals for the holidays, etc., etc., but I just don’t have the time to do that ALL THE TIME! I know you may think otherwise, but I really am not Super Mom! As much as I try to do all the fun traditions and such I’ve just realized that it’s not gonna happen for every holiday, so if I can do at least one fun thing then I’m happy. Having said that I will not be preparing an “ALL GREEN” meal on St. Patrick’s, but thought I could muster up at least one green dessert for next week. Still haven’t decided which one I’d do but but wanted to share with you 17+ St. Patrick’s Day Desserts that I will be choosing from. These all look TO-DIE-FOR  and I love that a lot of them include mint because that is one of my favorite ingredients in desserts.

SO – the questions I have for you are:

1 – Will you be cooking lots of green for the fam on St. Patty’s?


2 – Which of these desserts would you make if you had to choose. I need help deciding. :)

    I love making fun food for holidays. But this usually means that I add food coloring to whatever and call it good. pancakes can be so many different colors. Pink for Valentines. Green for St Patty’s Day. And Purple just because. We do have a tradition we like to follow for the 17th. We make Rueben Sandwiches. For Dessert we have Grasshopper Pie.

      Such a fun tradition, Suzanne!! I LOVE them. Grasshopper pie sounds awesome – you may have to send me the recipe. Anything mint and chocolate is the BEST! :)

    Let’s see….I won’t be cooking with a whole lot of green on St. Pat’s Day. If I make my kids favorite foods suddenly turn green I think they would decide they tasted like vegetables and refuse to eat them!!! 😉
    For the desserts……hm……I love the cupcake with the rainbow handle and rolo! My kids would have fun constructing that too. And I think the mint shamrock oreos look fun! I think it will probably be a giant scoop of mint chip ice cream with magic shell on top and green sprinkles!!!

      So right, Lizy! Sometimes easiest is best and mint ice cream with magic shell and sprinkles sounds pretty good right now… AND the kids will love it! :) Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day! :)

    Hard to choose but I would probably go with something rainbow or naturally green. Let’s just say I learned my lesson last year to not just add green food coloring to everything, I paid for it dearly the next day during what should have been a 4 hr. Trip to the zoo and 5 pair of pants plus a stop to target for more clothes, bless my poor little one! I like to do up st.patty’s day with treats from the leprechaun. But again I forewarn you to not just add green food coloring to milk, pancakes, icing, etc!

      Good to know, Lynn! Thanks for the warning. Sounds like you had a green nightmare last year :/ Hope this St. Patty’s is better for ya. :) XO

      We go traditional Irish with a boiled dinner, corned beef, potatoes, carrots and cabbage. Usually we can find some Irish soda bread at the store. http://thefoodwiz.com/tag/traditional-boiled-dinner/

        Wow – never had real traditional Irish food. Even when the hubby and I went to Ireland we stuck with the basics (like Subway and McDonald’s -LOL), but that was mostly because I was pregnant and super nauseated. Hopefully I will get to go back and eat the real, good food. :)

      Thanks, Marisa! Isn’t it fun… even if you’re not Irish? I didn’t really “get” into the holiday til I had kiddos, but they LOVE it. :) Hope you have a great day! XO

    I am totally going to make that jello! So cute! My sons birthday is this weekend, too. So maybe I will make them all! hahaha!

      Isn’t taht Jell-o awesome?! It just looks SO cool!!! PS – miss walking. Was sick last week and then with Spring Break I assumed there was no dance – hope I didn’t miss it again. LOL.

    Haha. Love the honest. I’m sure you’re still a super mom, we’re always hardest on ourselves. :) Plus it looks to me like your kids already got to fabulous St. Patrick’s Day treats! Seriously. I love the slice rainbow cookies. Those are adorable! Last year I made rainbow pancakes, and they were not really hard at all. Good luck!

    • 14

      Holy typos! Love the “honesty” and your kids got “two” not “to”. Bleh!
      Oh yeah, and this year, I think all I’m going to do is put some of those rainbow twizzlers in a bag with rolos at the bottom. Even easier than last year! :)

    • 16

      Rainbow pancakes is a great idea! I think I’ll do that Saturday. Thanks for the tip, girl! XO

    OH MAMA!! Kristyn you always have the YUMMIEST food pots! I don’t think I will be making any green this year but if I had to pick it would pick….the caramel rice crispy treats, or the mint pie, or the mint oreo cupcakes…. 😉

      LOL – that’s exactly how I am – I still haven’t decided – I’m thinking the rice crispy treats or pie are the top two for now. :) LOL Hope you have a great St. Patty’s!! :)

    I have tried to find the recipes for some of these items to no avail. I have a Shoppe where I serve desserts for the holidays and i can never find good ones forSt.. Patrick’s Day. How do I get these recipes? Thank you.
