If you want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with special sweets and treats but you don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen, these are the recipes for you. They come together quickly without a lot of fuss, but lucky you, they still look party-perfect.
Bailey’s in the boxed brownie mix and Bailey’s in the frosting make these a double delight. You should definitely tint the frosting green for St. Patrick’s Day, don’t you think?
Store-bought pound cake is dipped in a simple milk-and-sugar glaze and crusted with chopped peanuts. That’s how easy these cute St. Paddy’s Day treats are to make, and that’s not just a lot of sweet talk.
These minty fresh shakes will be a hit with leprechauns of all ages. Hint: You can slip a little something extra in the ones you make for the grown-ups. *wink, wink*
These easy, made-from-scratch cupcakes are laced with Bailey’s for that smooth and pleasing Irish cream flavor. Embellish with Peppermint Buttercream Frosting, if you wish.
They may look like teeny tiny potatoes, but they’re actually made from cream cheese, coconut, butter, and confectioners’ sugar. They get that potato-like appearance when they’re rolled in ground cinnamon. So cute and clever.
Dried currants and caraway seeds are the essential flavor agents in these simple cookies. To make them extra festive, cut them out in shamrock shapes. You can top them with green sugar or icing, but they taste great just the way they are, too.
Nope, there’s nothing remotely Irish about this recipe, except for the Irish whiskey the bananas are simmered in. But who’s complaining?
