It looks like we're in for another intimate and low-key St. Patrick's Day this year. While the parades and jam-packed bars serving up green beer may have to be put on hold, that doesn't mean you can't have a fun and festive, socially-distanced celebration at home. Here are a few green St. Patrick's Day desserts to sweeten the day.
Green Velvet Cake or Cupcakes
Red Velvet is so Valentine's Day. Go green this St. Patrick's Day by whipping up a Green Velvet Cake or Cupcakes. This recipe will make one standard layer cake or two dozen rich and moist green cupcakes. With a recipe this easy, you may want to make both!
St. Patrick's Day Mint Schnapps Shakes
Say "cheers" to St. Paddy's Day the fun, yet grown-up, way with these adults-only Mint Schnapps Shakes. These pale green minty shakes can be whipped up in only 5 minutes by blending ice cream with peppermint schnapps, vanilla, and green food colouring. Top with a sprig of fresh mint for an extra refreshing celebration.
Luck o' the Irish Brownie
You won't need the luck to have yourself a great St. Paddy's Day when you make a batch of these Luck o' the Irish Brownies. The rich, minty-green middle layer provides the perfect cool tingle to push these festive treats over the top.
Easy Pistachio Cream Pie
This Easy Pistachio Cream Pie can be made in just a few minutes! It requires no baking and is made with only 5 easy ingredients: milk, cream cheese, whipped topping (like Cool Whip), graham cracker crust, and/or cherries and crushed pistachios for topping.
Matcha Mousse Cake
This vegan Matcha Mousse Cake is a tasty, plant-based way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. You can make a quick crust with whatever (vegan) cookies you have on hand, or make an alternative crust in a food processor using walnuts and/or almonds and few dates. The nutty crust will make this treat gluten-free!
