Easy St. Patrick's Day Dessert Ideas

Happy Monday, friends!  Today I'm sharing a few fun and festive dessert recipes that you could add to your meal plan for the week!

My kids LOVE milkshakes and while this isn't as much a recipe as it is a method I thought I'd share...

Put a few big scoops of ice cream (probably about a cup or so) into your blender along with a splash or so of heavy cream.  Yes, I said heavy cream.  Add in a bit of food coloring if you're going extra festive and blend until it's smooth.   Top with whipped cream, cookies, sprinkles, etc.  

If you want to go the "shamrock shake" route add in a drop or two of mint extract.  You COULD absolutely use mint chocolate ice cream - I just had vanilla on hand and made it work.  My kids LOVED this and it's really easy to make to your liking adding more cream or even milk to think it out a bit until you get the consistence you like.  Crushed oreos would be an awesome addition as well!

 I made  this "jello cake" last year and it couldn't have been easier or more delicious.  I'm making this tonight!

These mint chocolate cookies are simple and full of flavor...

And if you have a bit more time,  these mint chocolate cupcakes are well worth the effort...

Last, but not least - no baking necessary by adding a festive touch to your Friday night movie night with a little magic popcorn topping spread...

Hoping you found a little sweet-spiration for your week! 

HAPPY Monday, friends!!!

  1. Andrea, I am hoping to use all of your ideas such as this when I'm a grandma! I didn't have the mental capacity or budget when my children were little...but you're going to help me the absolute best Grandma ever.
