Looking for some Irish dessert recipes to make for your St. Patrick's Day party? Here are a few themed Irish dessert recipes for you to make on a damp spring day!
Lucky Day Cinnamon Scones
Self rising soda bread flour works best in this recipe if you can find it. If not any self rising flour will work too.
St. Patrick's Irish Whisky Balls
These little gems become more flavorful the longer they set. Make them ahead of time and store them for 2 to 3 days to get the full flavor. Give them more of a St. Patrick's Day look by rolling them in green tinted sugar crystals instead of the confectioners' sugar.
Erin Go Bragh Pie
Garnish the top of your pie with some green mints that have been coarsely crushed. Any leftovers must be stored in the refrigerator and are good for up to 2 days.
Green Clover Pie
Top this pie with some whipped topping and crushed green peppermint candies for a perfect ending to your St. Patrick's Day meal.
Ireland's Pudding Cake
If your cake mix already has pudding in it cut your water amount down to 3/4 of a cup. Save time on chopping that chocolate by using 1 1/2 C of semi sweet chocolate chunks.
Lucky Cookie Pops
There are many variations to this cookie pop. Make four leaf clovers by cutting green gum drops in half and positioning them into a leaf form on the chocolate. Pot O' Gold can be made by cutting a yellow Dot candy in half and placing it on the chocolate before it sets. Place 3 yellow Nerds above the gold pot to represent the gold coins in the pot. Leprechauns can also be made with these little wonders. Use a yellow gumdrop cut in half to make the beard. Add chocolate sprinkles to the top for the Leprechauns hair and attach a half of green gum drop to the very top before the chocolate firms for his hat.
Use other St. Patrick cookie cutters and make whatever designs you like. Be sure to divide the icing into separate bowls if you want to use different colors. More green food coloring can be added to make your shamrocks darker in color.
