Irish you a happy St. Patrick’s Day! And what’s St. Patrick’s Day without some favorite green treats and drinks!
|We've all had recipe "fails'! Home is Where the Boat Is turned"failed" Irish Brownie Bites into "nailed it" Bombed Brownie Trifle.
We like this even better than the original recipe.
Let's hear it for ingenuity.
|We first made Live Love Pasta's Shamrock Shakes for the kids but it's an even bigger hit with the adults.
Change these up any way you like - add cookies, change the ice cream flavor - yummy goodness. You can even add a little "adult beverage" to kick it up a notch!
|These Thin Mint Truffles from The Recipe Critic starts with COOKIES! Need I say more. They're quick, easy and delicious.
Even though the color is great for St. Patty's day, we make these at Christmas too!
|I wouldn't call Sour Patch Grapes aka Leprechaun Candy "healthy" but at least they do start with grapes.
Kids love these, adults love these...they are addictive.
Head on over to A Spotted Pony and grab her easy recipe.
|This Shamrock Bark recipe had me at white chocolate and M&M's.
Three ingredients - get this simple, quick, easy recipe at Passion for Savings.
|I am a big fan of red velvet cake.
And I'm an even bigger fan of these Green Velvet Cupcakes from Love From the Oven!
|It gets hot here in the Phoenix area pretty early in the year, but the weather is still cool enough in March to enjoy a great cup of hot chocolate.
And The Gracious Wife's Mint White Hot Chocolate is really good.
|Call me crazy, but I like foods you can make and serve in little jars!
These little Mini Grasshopper Pies are easy to make and kids love helping to assemble them. Especially if they get to eat as they work.
Get this recipe at A Pretty Life in the Suburbs.
And while you're there, check out some of her other "food in a jar" recipes.
|It doesn't get any easier than these chocolate dipped Oreo Treats.
I love how neat and pretty Crafty Morning's Oreo Treats look...they taste even better.
|I love ice cream.
But homemade ice cream give me flashbacks of tired and sore arms from churning, churning and churning.
Not so with Passion for Savings' Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.
No churning! The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for it to freeze so you can enjoy it.
|Be prepared to be addicted - Leprechaun Popcorn is just that good!
We make this stuff all year round.
You can even customize it. I like pecans, my husband likes almonds and our son throws in Sour Patch Kids candy.
You can get the recipe at Blommi.
|All these other recipes contain sugar or alcohol so Healthy Fruit Skewers are the only really healthy recipe in this collection.
I love kiwi, melon and grapes so we eat this a lot. Sometimes we skip the skewers and just toss it all in a bowl.
You can find this recipe at Get Creative Juice.
|Let's talk about dips...ba-by!
How can you not like a Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip. That you dip cookies into. What's not to love.
Chocolate Moosey is my kind of website.
Check out her chocolate chip cookie brownie pie while you're there!
|I love Andes mints. Once I ate two boxes (not the little boxes!) in a single sitting. I felt a little sick afterward but it was so good.
Chef Savvy's Chocolate Andes Brownies are rich, fudgey, moist - all the things a great brownie should be.
|If you want something that's a little more elegant than cupcakes, Green Velvet Layer Cake is it.
It's the most complicated recipe I've included but it's so good and so beautiful, I couldn't leave it out.
You can get this recipe at Food Network!
|Life in the Lofthouse must know my weakness is anything with chocolate chips.
Add chocolate chips to cauliflower and I'll eat it!
These Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies are all that and a bag of chips (mint that is).
|There's Green Velvet Cake, Green Velvet Cupcakes and finally Green Velvet Cake Pops.
Can you really go wrong with cake on a stick?
Get the recipe at Love From the Oven.
|I made Ice Cream Jello the first time because it's so pretty. I made it the second time because everyone likes it.
Your kids will love making this with you.
The Food Librarian has a "best seller" (bad pun intended).
|Six Sister's Stuff Evergreen Punch from their Halloween Cookbook is perfect for St. Patty's day.
Make extra and chill because everyone will want a refill.
|The kids adore Cheeky Kitchen's Shamrock Ale!
They even make mustaches with the foam - it's not just good, it's entertaining!
And super easy.
We’ve taken care of the treats suitable for the entire family however, what’s a St. Patrick’s Day without a few “over 21” treats!
And if you have the luck of the Irish, undoubtedly, you’ll have a magical, wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!
|I was never a big fan of sangria until I tried this sangria.
We Love Cooks with Cocktails Apple and Pear Green Sangria.
With white wine, apple vodka and sour puss apple, it's sweet and tart and tastes so good!
|How can you go wrong with Jello shots? There has to be a reason they've been a favorite for so long.
Homemade Hooplah's Midora Jello Shots are one of our party favorites. It's perfectly balanced between sweet and sour with just a hint of melon.
|Confession time. I tried this recipe because my husband brought me some of these cool copper Moscow mule mugs.
And I wanted to make a cool drink to go with my cool new mugs. I'm not a "hard liquor" girl, so I didn't expect to really like Fox and Briar's Irish Mule. But...
I added more ginger beer than the recipe called for and all I've got to say is this is some good stuff.
It looks great in my new mugs!
|The Irish Flag Drink is one pretty impressive drink. The layers just makes it look important.
My husband is an Irish Creme guy, so this is his drink.
Want to impress your friends with your bartending skills?
Get the recipe from Mix That Drink and layer away.
|Platings and Pairings Green Bloody Mary is a thing of beauty.
The jalapeno adds a welcome kick (allow 24 hours to infuse the vodka with the jalapeno).
If you don't like it thick - strain it. The flavors will be so worth the extra step.
I wonder if this counts toward my vegetable servings for the day?
|Give me a good margarita and I'm one happy woman.
And In the Kitchen with KP's Green Apple Margarita makes me happy.
If you like a sweet margarita, the apple juice and green apple snow cone flavoring makes this margarita a good match for you.
They bring back memories for summers spent riding bikes, walking to the park and sharing homemade popsicles with friends.
The Brewer and the Baker's Margarita Popsicles are the adult version.
But you'll still want to share with your friends.
|You like pudding, you like Baileys - then this is for you!
That's So Michelle's Jello Pudding Shots are a dessert that can give you a buzz.
I don't like pistachio pudding so I just use vanilla and add a little food coloring.
|Here's another take on a pudding shot. Bailey's Pudding Shots are so easy to make.
I do add more Bailey's than the 2 Tablespoons the recipe calls for (don't judge me!).
You can even eliminate the Bailey's and add extra milk to make it for the kids.
Head over to Crazy for Crust to get the recipe.
|Who'd thought I'd ever be a martini girl?
Gourmande in the Kitchen has won me over with their Apple Ginger Martini. It doesn't taste like I thought a martini would taste.
The ginger adds spiciness and the apple adds just enough sweetness.
And I look the way I feel drinking from a martini glass!
|And finally there is
It's St. Patrick's Day. Just add some green food color to your beer of choice.
Still need instructions? Betty Crocker's got you covered.
Wishing you a pot o' gold and all the blessings your heart can hold!
Happy St. Patrick's Day
