Feeling a little festive for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day? One way to celebrate is by including some green decor pieces into your home. Another way is by enjoying some sweet St. Patrick’s Day-themed treats for the occasion. From nutty to milky to even boozy, here are some recipes for you to try out:
Matcha Green Tea Shortbread Cookies
Although not technically a flavor closely related to anything Irish, the bright green color of matcha powder makes for a wonderful addition to the holiday. This recipe will work well for that St. Patrick’s Day party you may be planning; it’s simple and effective to serve in bulk.
Irish Coffee Milk Shooters
For a more adult-oriented party, a spiked dessert like this will certainly please the crowd. Mix your favorite Irish cream liqueur with some coffee-flavored ice cream and then top it with some whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and a chocolate straw. Just make sure that you have enough shots for everybody; you might have to make seconds!
Pistachio Ice Cream Sandwiches with Thin Mint Cookies
Still have some thin mint cookies left over from your local girl scouts? Firstly, how?!?! Second, you can instead use them to make an even more delicious treat. Grab some pistachio-flavored ice cream and crushed pistachios and sandwich them with those irresistible cookies. You will certainly not regret it!
Cocoa-Nutty Lime Tart
Craving for something more citrusy? Try this recipe out for a limey escape. Prepare the dough with a mix of butter, chocolate, and coconut. Once fully baked, add a mix of lime juice, cream cheese, and condensed milk for a delectable cake for the occasion.
Baileys Cheesecake Cups
Here’s another boozy treat for you! Top your brownies with a mix of Irish cream liqueur, cream cheese, melted chocolate, and whipped cream. For a non-alcoholic alternative, just ditch the Irish coffee liqueur altogether.
