St. Patrick’s Day Desserts

St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most fun holidays in our household.

We love celebrating with food, mostly.

We aren’t big drinkers, but we love a good GREEN dessert and some Shepherd’s Pie!

To help you make the most of your St. Patty’s Day family festivities, I’ve created a post around the best St. Patrick’s Day Desserts!

You can make most of these with your children, although there are a few boozy options that are best left for the adults to share and enjoy ;).

If your kids aren’t that keen on green food yet (like Brussel sprouts, broccoli, or spinach…), they are sure to change their mind about the color green after trying these tasty treats!

*This post contains affiliate links, however, all opinions are my own, as always. 

Here are some delicious cookie recipes for St. Patrick’s day…

Minty Chip Cake Mix Cookies

Minty Chip Leprechaun cookies from ReneesKitchenAdventures.com - SLAYathomemother.com

“Cake mix cookies are so super easy and there is no need to bring butter to room temperature or drag out the electric mixer.  Just a few ingredients and you’ve got some delicious cookies to share!  

Make sure not to over-bake your cookies!  

That’s the secret to good cake mix cookies…if you only bake them until they look just set, they will be perfect.”

White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Matcha Cookies

“Since this recipe uses matcha, which is made with powdered green tea leaves, the cookies have a natural green color.

Matcha can also give you a boost of energy, but it doesn’t change the flavor of the cookies much.”

Leprechaun Cookies

“These super cute Leprechaun cookies are perfect for making with kids! 

The cookies are store-bought, so your job is solely to transform them into a happy leprechaun.

“I baked these in half-pint jars because I like to pack desserts in jars with a lid and keep them in the fridge. That way they’re ready to roll whenever I need something to pop in a kids’ lunch.

Or my husband’s lunch. Or for coffee hour once everyone is off to school.

They’re handy and they have a lid so they are just totally portable.”
